Our experienced Research and Development team can support researchers with their studies throughout the process.

Our Research Governance team supports and advises researchers in meeting the requirements of local and UK regulatory frameworks and our finance team will provide advice and support in costing studies.

With a world-class oncology centre and research department, the Royal Surrey is an innovative hospital with ambitious plans for growth. The hospital currently employs an increasing number of staff who are training in clinical/academic posts and is an excellent place to begin, or further your careeer in research.
