About our research Recent discoveries

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 we do at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. Hannah Dunnington took part in a clinical trial on using kisspeptin to stimulate ovulation in women at risk of developing complications during IVF treatment. Hannah, who gave birth to baby Isabelle, talks about why she took part in the clinical study at Hammersmith Hospital and its impact. The video also features an interview with Waljit Dhillo, NIHR Professor in Endocrinology and Metabolism at Imperial College London, who led the study. He explains more about how kisspeptin works and the results of the trial.
