Commercial Research

Commercial research

Velindre University NHS Trust works closely with commercial companies to undertake funded, high-quality, ethical research, that is carried out to recognised international quality standards.

Clinical trials and innovation driven by the commercial sector play an important role in keeping the NHS at the forefront of modern treatments and research. Commercial research offers clinicians and patients early access to the latest technologies for diagnosing and treating disease and it is essential for the development of new medicines, treatments and healthcare technologies.
