Clinical Research Facilities play a vital role in experimental medical research, through facilitating first-in-human and early safety and efficacy Clinical Trials by providing dedicated purpose-built facilities and expertise for the delivery of high-intensity studies.

The National Institute for Health Research's commitment to funding 28 Clinical Research Facilities will not only expand the delivery of early phase clinical research in National Health Service hospitals across England but will also play an important role in continuing to enhance the UK's reputation as being one of the leading global hubs for Life Sciences in general.
