Research and Development team

The Research and Development team in United Kingdom and Ireland support the business as it strives to pioneer breakthroughs in healthcare. For everyone. Everywhere.

Based throughout the country, our R&D team works alongside and in some instance, embedded within teaching hospitals and research centres with researchers and academics in universities, to push the boundaries of current practice and support improved outcomes for patients.

Siemens Healthineers is continuously developing its product and service portfolio, with AI-supported applications and digital offerings that play an increasingly important role in the next generation of medical technology. Innovation in partnership is at the centre of our joint projects to optimise the use of these new applications to enhance the provision of diagnostic imaging, image-guided therapy and innovative cancer care, whilst addressing workforce challenges, funding and staffing shortages within the NHS.
