Sharron Davies opens new respiratory research clinic
Date:6/10/2010

Olympic swimmer and television personality Sharron Davies MBE was in Nottingham this week to open a new clinical trials unit that will take treatments for respiratory illnesses such as asthma from laboratory bench to bedside.

The Nottingham Respiratory BRU Clinical Trials Unit will bridge the gap between treatment and research by offering clinical services to NHS patients with respiratory disease, while recruiting volunteers for studies into developing new drugs and therapies to help people to manage their illness.

The new centre is part of the Nottingham Respiratory Biomedical Research Unit (NRBRU), a partnership between The University of Nottingham and Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust.

Funded with 6.1 million by the Department of Health's National Institute for Health Research, it is one of 16 Biomedical Research Units in the UK focusing on 'translational research' taking advances and innovations in basic medical research out of the laboratory and into NHS practice, with the ultimate aim of improving patient care.

Sharron Davies unveiled the new unit, based at the Nottingham City Hospital campus on Wednesday June 9.

She said: "I am delighted to have been invited to open the new Nottingham Respiratory BRU Clinical Trials Unit. Asthma is a serious disease and a health issue that many competitive swimmers have to overcome to achieve success in their sport. It is exciting to think that the clinical trials that will be conducted in Nottingham could one day make a real difference to the millions of people worldwide who suffer from this debilitating illness."

The Nottingham Respiratory Biomedical Research Unit brings together 10 research groups carrying out biomedical, epidemiological and clinical respiratory research. The new clinical trials unit will be based within Nottingham City Hospital in space previously occupied by the paediatric outpatient facility before it was moved to the new Nottingham Ch
