For researchers


Southampton is part of the national effort to prevent, diagnose and treat COVID-19.

In order to do this, the UHS R&D department is reducing the range of studies it supports until further notice – full details for investigators and staff can be found here.


We provide research expertise and the clinical, laboratory and management support needed to conduct your research safely and efficiently.

Getting you started

We offer state of the art facilities, integrated in a core site within Southampton General Hospital and with a wider network of local collaborators and partners.

You can find out more about accessing these facilities and resources here.

Developing your research career

The Southampton Academy of Research is our centre for developing your research career, whether just starting out or looking to build your research activity.

On their pages in our Education and training section you can explore the research career pathways open to you, book onto courses and training, and access useful resources and support.

You can also listen to what other researchers have to say about their careers and work here in our Researchers’ experiences section.
