Our School hosts the East London NHS Foundation Trust Foot Health Clinic and has a Clinical Education building on the Stratford campus that contains a bespoke first-in-class podiatric medicine consulting suite, consulting rooms, patient changing and showers and a new nursing training facility with state-of-the-art simulation labs, including augmented and virtual reality technologies. We also have a large refurbished human physiology laboratory with adjoining wet lab containing sophisticated body composition, metabolic analysis and a body-motion sensor system.
Our School has invested substantially in the analytics research environment, with a £5m HEFCE/UEL funded refurbishment and re-equipment of the laboratories and infrastructure. For example, genomic/proteomic and cellular and ion channel electrophysiological equipment (e.g., BD Celesta and Accuri C6 FACS, capillary DNA sequencer, gel documentation system, Flow cytometry, RT-PCRCFlow, Agilent qPCR, Electrophysiology work station, LC-DAD and LC-ESI-MS systems, Latach QC8500 analyser).
This close apposition of clinical and analytical resources, coupled with the substantive collaborations with UCL Partners as well as Barts Health and Guy's & St Thomas', Newham NHS Trust, and St George's University of London (GCP Analytics), provides a powerful resource for HSB Clinical Research.
