Research and education

Cobalt is currently contributing to 30+ research projects and we run a series of Orthopaedic and Oncology evening education events for medical professionals.

Research

We have a dedicated Research Group led by Professor Iain Lyburn and a Research Committee whose members include several highly regarded clinicians working within the research fields of dementia and oncology. The committee reviews current projects, as well as considers any other innovations or new exciting projects, which may have been presented to us. Most recently this has resulted in a very important project, (our first-ever research project involving ultrasound imaging) which is looking into the treatment of cancer patients that are at high risk of developing venous thromboembolism (blood clots).

We have developed a new research MRI facility on the campus of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. This new imaging centre will support the Institute of Translational Medicine with numerous research studies, working with Birmingham Health Partners, a partnership between University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust, the University of Birmingham and Birmingham Children’s Hospital NHS Trust.
