Course content

The clinical science group supports a wide range of research ranging from the purely clinical setting through to basic science with an emphasis on the translational opportunities “from bench to bedside”.

Research in clinical science is based primarily at the University of North Staffordshire Hospital site and the associated Guy Hilton Research Centre, with well-established links to scientists working on Keele campus. Other clinical research, including that at the RJAH hospital in Oswestry, falls within the Bioengineering and Therapeutics area.
