Welcome to the UNHS research website

We are an NHS general practice serving the staff and students of the University of Nottingham.

We are also a Research Leadership site for the East Midlands and have over 10 years’ experience in delivering NHS research.

We do this because research is of fundamental importance to the future of the NHS and it benefits our community and our patients.

Priority COVID-19 research

We are currently involved in three of the government’s Priority COVID-19 research projects:

COVID-19 vaccine study (COV002) – Working with the University of Oxford and in partnership with the University of Nottingham, Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust (NUH) and NIHR CRN East Midlands we are helping to develop a safe vaccine that can be used to create immunity against the pandemic Coronavirus, and thus prevent Covid-19 disease. But we need your help. 

What’s the STORY (COVID-19 antibodies in children) – Working with the University of Oxford and in partnership with the University of Nottingham and NIHR CRN East Midlands we are looking for volunteer children of all ages and young adults (0 - 19 years) to donate a small sample of blood that will help us make decisions about their future, and the future of all our children, on firm scientific evidence. 

PRINCIPLE trial – Working with the University of Oxford, the PRINCIPLE trial aims to find out whether selected treatments given to people at higher risk of becoming more ill when they are infected with the pandemic Coronavirus can help reduce the need for hospitalisation and the length of stay required, helping people recover quicker and with fewer complications.
