Research FIRST

Flexible, Innovative Research Support Team

Delivered through Birmingham Health Partners and the Institute of Translational Medicine, the Research FIRST service supports non-CTIMP studies across a wide variety of methodologies and research areas.

The Research FIRST service is delivered by the core team based at the ITM, with direct access to clinical, academic and professional services support from across the BHP ecosystem. 

We aim to provide a flexible service, tailored to the requirements of individual teams and/or projects. We can provide support in database development and maintenance, data management and research co-ordination, and have the flexibility to provide support for discrete elements of a project. This may include IRAS submission or database design, or taking responsibility for the delivery of an entire study. We can also support the delivery of larger strategic grants where programming or research co-ordination expertise is required.

Delivered through Birmingham Health Partners and the Institute of Translational Medicine, the Research FIRST service supports non-CTIMP studies across a wide variety of methodologies and research areas.
