Could the next big medical breakthrough come from Cornwall?
Treliske is running trials for patients dealing with diabetes, breast cancer and strokes amongst other things.
Bosses revealed on Friday, the hospital had put forward the first UK patient in a new world-wide study looking at managing treatment for people with diabetes.
There is evidence that standards of care go up in hospitals which do more research.
Dr Duncan Brown's a consultant at the Royal Cornwall.
He said: "We get more knowledge, we get more interest, we're able to atttract the best calibre of staff. It's about getting everybody on board, so they understand about modern treatments, how they work and how they can best treat our patients.
"Without that, the hospital can become stagnant. So it's really vital that we look at research and innovation so we're always trying to improve, always trying to see what we can do next to improve the care of our patients and this is one aspect of that."
