We are led by Professor Richard Costello, Director of Research at RCPI and Associate Professor of Medicine at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.
The department was established in 2012 to invigorate and accelerate RCPI’s research activities.
We are passionate about:
If you are planning to conduct research that requires ethics approval, (excluding clinical trials) our Research Ethics Committee can conduct an ethical review to ensure it is conducted according to best ethical practice.
We are committed to supporting emerging clinician investigators. If you’re on an RCPI training programme, we can guide you through the full research process, from putting together a strong proposal for funding, to getting your research published.
We coordinate the funding process for applied health services research into quality and patient safety issues.
We welcome opportunities to collaborate on research that supports effective training, healthy physicians or quality healthcare
