Research helps COVID-19 effort
As one of the top trusts in England for research, we play a key part in halting the current pandemic. Our researchers are working to identify and test COVID-19 treatments and diagnostics.
Setting up new trials usually takes several months. Our Research and Development team have worked to allow the Trust to join national priority studies in just weeks. We are incredibly grateful to the patients who have already joined these trials, and their families.
More than 1,000 Guy’s and St Thomas’ patients have already joined the ISARIC trial, which aims to understand how COVID-19 progresses. We are also the top recruiter in the country to GENOMMIC, a study finding out whether patients’ genes affect how ill COVID-19 makes them.
