University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust is one of the biggest and busiest NHS trusts in the country, employing over 15,000 staff and serving the one million residents of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

We pave the way for future treatments and care pathways through pioneering research for the benefit of all patients – from the youngest to the oldest. Our nationally and internationally-renowned research in cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, diabetes, cancer and renal disorders has a proven track record of making a real difference to patients’ lives.

In partnership with the University of Leicester and Loughborough University, our Biomedical Research Centre is translating scientific breakthroughs into diagnostic tests, prevention and life-saving treatments for the benefit of patients in and beyond our vicinity.

We host an NIHR BioResource and have a wealth of experience in developing and running large cohort studies across our specialties, such as BRICCS, GENVASC, CODEC and EXCEED. In combination with the Centre for BME Health and NIHR Applied Research Collaboration East Midlands, we have particular strengths in working with multi-ethnic populations, particularly those originating from South Asia.
