The Clinical Sciences Centre brings together scientists, academic and clinical researchers and healthcare professionals from a range of disciplines to address some of the major challenges in clinical medicine.
A partnership between Hull York Medical School and Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, we work in collaboration – sharing knowledge and expertise and working with patients to understand the impact of disease on their daily lives – and developing new interventions and treatments to improve the diagnosis treatment and care of their conditions.
Healthcare is evolving rapidly in response to the fact that the population is growing, people are living longer and in light of evolving healthcare needs such as the increased prevalence of long-term health conditions and multimorbidity. In response, we are addressing some of the major challenges in clinical medicine including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease, vascular disease and associated therapies, and cancer.
"Our aim is to advance healthcare through our research and the impact of our teaching. By working in partnership with Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, we are creating a community of clinical and academic researchers who together, can better understand the healthcare challenges of today and develop interventions, treatments and medicine which will really make a difference to patients – within our own region and further afield."

"Our aim is to provide outstanding quality of care and clinical services to patients and service users, and research lies at the heart of that. Through our partnership with Hull York Medical School, we can establish our region as a nationally recognised research centre of excellence for clinical research, developing diagnoses and treatments to meet their needs, now and in the future."
Chief Executive, Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust
"I’m deeply honoured and incredibly proud to have been given the opportunity to lead the establishment of the Clinical Sciences Centre. It is my hope that our Centre will become the home of our vibrant clinical research academia in the region. I believe that by bringing together, resourcing and supporting appropriately the high calibre individual clinical researchers across our institutions, we can achieve the excellence in research that will spearhead the health improvements our patient population requires and deserves."
