Welcome to National RSDU
Welcome to the National Network of Research and Development Support Units for health care research in England. We are a group of professional research support units funded by the National Co-Ordinating Centre for Research Capacity Development (part of NHS R&D) in order to support high quality and multi-disciplinary health and social care research. We do this by running various courses and training programmes, increasing research awareness through local and national meetings, collaborating in research and sometimes leading research

Medical research is basically research work conducted majorly to help and support the knowledge body in the field of medicine. This can either be basic research, applied research or even translational research.

In normal practice medical research can broadly be classified into two categories. The first classification is the evaluation of new treatments for both safety and efficacy. This is in a type of research referred to as clinical trials. It can also be done in a research category that contributes to the development of new treatments. This research is commonly known as pre-clinical research and in most cases is done majorly to elaborate knowledge on the development of new therapeutic remedies.

The most current development in medical research is the translation research that generally focuses on iterative feedback. This is done between the basic and the clinical research domains to improve and increase knowledge translation. Medical research can either be done on public health, biochemistry, clinical research, microbiology, surgery, oncology and even research on non- communicable diseases like diabetes. mobile patrol servicesMedical research efforts by efforts made by scientists and engineers globally has taken science and technology to astounding heights. This has seen the development of outstanding inventions of cutting-edge laboratory equipments that have been used to help biologists and chemists in carrying out research leading to the establishment of new and more effective therapeutic measures. Medical research is the result of the current increased longevity of humans over the past century. This is because effective and more advance medical research has seen major benefits in the health field. This includes the development of vaccines for pandemics like measles and polio and insulins for management of diabetes and several classes of antibiotics for treating hosts of bacterial infections. Through medical research it is now possible to manage deadly clinical conditions like AIDS and stations.

The scope of medical research is currently is currently undergoing great expansion with the development and availability of highly complex laboratory apparatus. Medical research has advanced to a branch of science, through which medical practitioners especially Medical officers, students and even doctors are considering as a practical option.

Medical research and development in the health field is making a lot of contributions and support to the medical field. This is being done by professionals with credible knowledge of medicines or greater understanding of the research fields. With the increased technological advancement medical research field is expected to experience greater growth in the future. Therefore is a field that young scientists can consider for career development.
