The Research & Development department have devised a contingency plan and Investigator Guidance in light of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation which you can read here.
Here at Research and Development we conduct research into many areas of mental and physical health. These have included, but have not been limited to, research into psychosis, diabetes, cardiac conditions, depression, stroke, anxiety and long term neurological conditions.
Within the Memory Assessment and Research Centre (MARC) we conduct research into memory disorders including Mild Cognitive Impairment, Alzheimer's Disease, and Dementia with Lewy Body's. We are working towards finding a treatment to slow the progression of memory decline and improve quality of life.
We also provide support to research practitioners and students within Southern Health. The aim of such research is to understand how to diagnose, treat, cure and prevent disease.
