Surgical Intervention Trials Unit (SITU)
- +44 (0) 1865 223491
Currently, less than 5% of government funding for medical research goes into surgery
One of only 7 Royal College of Surgeons specialist trial centres across the whole of the UK, SITU is a collaboration between the Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences (NDS) and the Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences (NDORMS). We have an extensive portfolio of surgical trials and welcome expressions of interest from potential new researchers.
