The ‘Rapid Research Evaluation and Appraisal Lab’ (RREAL) aims to improve the quality and impact of rapid research used to study and evaluate clinical and health service models and interventions for time-sensitive contexts by focusing on the three areas of work:

1.The development of rapid methodologies in health services research with an aim to understand and improve the organisation and management of healthcare delivery around the world.

2.Clinical trials with the purpose of understanding local socio-cultural contexts and integrating rapid qualitative research approaches in trial design and implementation.

3.Global health and health emergencies with a specific emphasis on emerging needs in low – and middle – income countries (LMICs) and under resourced settings
