Research Units

Similar to the Centres, Research Units will support health and social care research teams to address areas of public need.

However, Units will focus on more specific areas of research, such as certain points on the translational spectrum and/or areas of emerging strength in Wales.

The Research Units are:

Brain Repair and Intracranial Neurotherapeutics (BRAIN) Unit

Wales Kidney Research Unit

Diabetes Research Unit Cymru

Within their area of research, Research Units will:

  • Drive research development and delivery
  • Generate grant funding
  • Build capacity and capability
  • Foster collaboration across sectors
  • Engage with and involve the public in research
  • Facilitate translation of research
