We support and promote research in the following areas:

We also take the lead on research studies relating to wounds such as venous ulcers and pressure ulcers.

'Dermatology research improves lives for patients. It brings in new treatments for difficult conditions and shows up drugs which are neffective. Patients who get involved with clinical studies tend to stay healthier, so our team wishes to make research available for all. Research is best done in a team and the NIHR is working towards bringing doctors, patients, nurses and scientists together to achieve what could never be done alone.' Dr Nick Levell, Dermatology National Specialty Lead
