£7.5m to transform patient care
Date:4/9/2008

y Hospital Campus with a new Clinical Respiratory Unit. This will build on research into lung diseases, cystic fibrosis, asthma, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. These are all major areas of disease burden in the UK in terms of morbidity, health care costs and mortality which already have strong research publication and funding portfolios. There is also a pressing clinical need for new approaches to therapy.

Professor Alan Knox, of the Division of Respiratory Medicine at the University said: This is an exciting development which provides a platform for us to take promising therapies from our strong basic science and epidemiology programmes through to the point that they can provide benefit to patients with a range of common lung diseases.

Hearing research in Nottingham already has an outstanding record. The MRCIHR has been established since 1977 and is world-leading in both basic and clinical aspects of hearing research.

Nottingham was the first dedicated paediatric cochlear implant programme in the UK and is one of the largest of its kind in Europe. The new research programme will build on existing strengths in applying learning to treat hearing problems in collaboration with the Learning Sciences Research Institute, at The University of Nottingham.

Dr Heather Fortnum, Associate Professor and Reader in Hearing Research in the School of Medical and Surgical Sciences said: This unique collaboration between the University, the Trust and the MRC will produce real benefits for the huge number of adults and children with hearing problems.

Nottingham's BRUs are also being considered for capital awards from the Department of Health of 2m each.

Dawn Primarolo, Public Health Minister, said: People who suffer from illnesses such as asthma and hearing problems will really benefit from these new NIHR Biomedical Research Units. This will strengthen our drive to put the UK at the forefront of vital health research
