Nottingham Hospitals Charity is proud to support medical research projects across Nottingham’s NHS hospitals – and thanks to our donors, we have been able to give £10 million for research funding over the past 16 years.
With the help of our supporters, we have funded over 200 important and innovative research projects, which may not otherwise have been possible.
From dementia to childhood illnesses, and cancer to arthritis, we support studies into a whole range of different conditions, all taking place here in Nottingham.
On Thursday 17th November we were delighted to attend a research conference and research dinner organised by Nottingham Hospital’s Research and Innovation team, where we met some of the researchers working at our hospitals, and found out more about their important work.
At the event, we also launched our 2022 Research Report, which outlines some of the important projects we have funded over the years.
One study into breast cancer, led by Professor Stephen Chan, developed a way of determining whether individual patients’ tumours would respond to chemotherapy, enabling clinicians to tailor their patients’ care and avoid unnecessary treatment and side effects.
The initial research study, funded by Nottingham Hospitals Charity, led to a further £1 million in funding from the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR).
Read more about the other innovative projects we have funded in our 2022 Research Report.
Thank you to everyone who has donated to make this possible.
