Past events

Red4Research - Friday 3rd April 2020

The wear #Red4Research campaign took place on Friday 3rd April 2020). People across the country, including staff in the Clinical Research & Innovation Office wore something red to demonstrate their support and appreciation for all those participating, undertaking and supporting COVID-19 research. 

How are we supporting COVID19 research?


Over the last few weeks, as with many organisations, the Clinical Research & Innovation Office has moved to being largely home-based, but with staff in the office where necessary to ensure ongoing service delivery.


At an early stage we commenced a review of our on-going study activity to categorise studies which needed to continue such as those from a patient safety perspective, those which were non essential/non urgent and those that were critical as part of urgent pandemic health research. As well as aligning with the guidance of the National Institute for Health Research, this approach ensures resources can be directed appropriately to ensure patient safety across our research portfolio, but also effective study set up and delivery of urgent health research looking at potential treatments for COVID-19.


We were pleased to support #Red4Research in showing our appreciation for all those staff and patients who are undertaking, supporting and participating in research that will help find effective treatments, diagnostics and vaccines for COVID-19.
