How can research save lives?

Traumatic injury can happen to anyone

Alison, a former neuro-physiotherapist at The Royal London Hospital, was cycling to work one morning when she was hit by a car. She was treated for spinal injuries by the trauma team at The Royal London.

“As a trauma physician turned patient, I know the care I received was the best there is, and I am alive and walking now thanks to them.”

Funding extraordinary healthcare

Because of the start provided by us, the Centre for Trauma Sciences was able to secure extra funding for research into:

  • Prevention of major bleeding, an international study funded by €9m from the European Union
  • An antimalarial drug that may prevent organ failure, a unique study funded by £760,000 from the Wellcome Trust
  • A lipid emulsion to treat brain and spinal cord injury, thanks to £400,000 of industry funding
