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

We are prioritising COVID-19 research and the protection of vulnerable participants on specific studies, e.g. cancer treatment trials. We are pausing all other studies to enable this and to redeploy staff and resources to the clinical frontline.

Please visit our dedicated pages at for more information.

Participants’ safety  is our overriding priority - if you are currently in a research study, and have any concerns about how this will affect you, please contact a member of your study team. You will find their details on your study information sheet.
