This film was part of a series to help prostate cancer patients understand the process of the STAMPEDE cancer trials. The films were commissioned by the Medical Research Council’s Clinical Trails Unit which is now part of the Universirty of London (UCL.)

STAMPEDE is a mult-arm trial which helps speed up the trials process to get patients new gold standard treatments faster.

Biomedical Research Centre

This short is a to camera introduction to the new Biomedical Research Centre at the Institute of Psychiatry. King’s College London.

IOP's Bio Resource lab

The NIHR Biomedical Research Centres (BRC’s) drive progress on innovation in biomedicine into NHS practice.
The lab has been set up to collect and analyse thousands of blood samples from psychiatric patients to provide a resource for researchers to find new treatments and possibly even cures for a huge range of psychiatric conditions such as Alzheimers or Aspergers.

BRC Bioresource and Genomics & Biomarkers themes are led by Dr Gerome Breen

Gerome takes us through the labs using a mix of scripted material and ad libbed peices to camera.
Filmed and editied by David over two days at the IOP, King’s College London.

Alzheimer’s Research Kings College London

Open day at the Institute of Psychiatry

This film follows the work of Professor Simon Lovestone and a dedicated team at the Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College London.

Every year the IOP open their doors to the public to look at different research areas tackling Alzheimer’s.

Using the fruit fly in the search for genetic markers

We made this film about the day and  a series of six shorter films for the IOP covering each specialisation from brain donation to the use of the fruit fly in the search for genetic markers for the disease.

It was clear to us on the day how many families are affected by Alzheimer’s and how much they value the opportunity to see the latest research developments and talk to scientists offering hope and comfort.
