About our research Research with impact

Research plays a vital role in helping us to improve health outcomes for our patients and deliver effective care.

Below is an example of the research work carried out at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. Elaine Baker took part in a trial using a new drug compound to treat women who experience frequent hot flushes as a result of menopause. Elaine talks about the reasons why she took part in the study and the difference the experimental drug has made to her hot flushes. The video also includes an interview with Professor Waljit Dhillo, NIHR professor in endocrinology and metabolism at Imperial College London, and Dr Julia Prague, ‎academic clinical fellow in diabetes and endocrinology at ‎Imperial College London. They explain more about how the drug compound works, how they recruited patients, and the results of the trial.
