Patient Led Research Hub

Our Aim

Patients understand their condition and needs better than many medical professionals do.

They may also have ideas about what research would be most beneficial to their lives. However, due to the complexity and cost involved in running clinical trials, the majority of research originates with the pharmaceutical industry or academic researchers. The Cambridge PLRH supports patient-centred (patient led or co-produced) research, working in partnership with patient groups to deliver clinical studies based on their own research questions.
