Research FAQs

At Sheffield Children’s Hospital we do clinical research to get a better understanding about medical conditions that affect the health of children and young people. We also carry out research in the adult population in the field of Clinical Genetics.

We do lots of research to test new methods of treatment and to determine whether these new treatments are safe and how well they work.

You don’t always have to be a patient to take part in clinical research – we often need healthy volunteers to take part in our studies.
