Research and Innovation (R&I) Office

What we do

The Research and Innovation Office (formerly the R&D Hub), maintains oversight of hospital based research activity, and works to support and strengthen the research culture on campus.

The R&I Office approves research proposals, and provides research support to staff in a signposting capacity.

The online R&I Research Application From must be filled out and submitted for review before starting any study, and applies to all forms of research.
See link below to R&I Research Application Form and associated Guidance Document.

Please email to receive the link to the External R&I Research Application Form.

If you are on the Campus of St. James's Hospital, you can access the link directly from the R&I Intranet site.

See the application form guidance document for further information about the application process and for information that might be helpful with your project such as the ethics application requirements, data protection and informed consent.
