Having a CRF allows us to take part in studies examining new therapies for patients with pulmonary hypertension. The CRF in Sheffield is a friendly and welcoming environment and has contributed to multiple studies in pulmonary hypertension leading to the licensing of new therapies which has transformed the outlook for patients with pulmonary hypertension.


In the Academic Directorate of Respiratory Medicine we are excited at the potential to improve outcomes for patients with respiratory disease and look forward to continued collaborations over coming years.
