The NIHR Biomedical Research Centre at Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology (NIHR Moorfields BRC) provides support for translational research leading to the rapid track delivery of new diagnostic methods and therapies, developed both internally and in partnership with other organisations.

As of April 2017, there will be 20 BRC’s nationally. The NIHR Moorfields BRC is the only one solely dedicated to research into eye health and the treatment and prevention of sight loss conditions.

Public involvement in research

The multidisciplinary PPI/E team at the NIHR Moorfields BRC seek ways to support the involvement of patients and the public in influencing the vision research that is conducted on our site.

Through our programme of patient and public involvement (PPI) we gather views, experiences and insights from patients, family members and friends to ensure that our research meets the needs of people affected by eye conditions. We aim to encourage the sharing of experiences; gain insights into the impact of a condition on people’s lives; prioritise research questions and seek opinions on the acceptability of procedures used in research.

Our PPI work is supported further by a parallel programme of patient and public engagement (PPE), which provides opportunities to educate about specific eye conditions; update on current and future research and discuss with the public priorities and challenges of developing new diagnostics and treatments.
