Committed to growing international research, education and innovation

We are a leading applied health research unit committed to improving the lives and care of people with diabetes and other long term conditions. Based on the site of Leicester General Hospital, we are a collaboration between the University of Leicester and University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust. 

Whilst embodying what is most innovative in a partnership between NHS and academia, we believe in keeping close to our local communities – valuing their input, and their support for all that we do. This support has enabled us to impact on the care of people with diabetes not only in our own city, but also throughout the UK and overseas. Read more
