Clinical trials

Clinical trials are an essential part of our medical research.

We run a range of clinical trials for many diseases — see below for all current trials and ongoing programs. If appropriate, please consider participating: you'll be helping us create a healthier future for all.  

The benefits of clinical trials: 

  • enable deep insights and understanding of disease
  • identify new treatments and therapies

All our trials adhere to strict protocols around safety, ethics and privacy.
