The NIHR Cambridge Clinical Research Facility (CRF) is part of the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) and hosted by Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
Located on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, we provide a suite of purpose-built, staffed facilities for delivery of experimental medicine and translational research across two sites, at Cambridge University Hospitals and Royal Papworth Hospital. Patients and the public can take part in studies testing the latest developments to transform healthcare. Our dedicated teams work with clinicians, scientists and industry partners, enabling the delivery of commercial and non-commercial experimental medicine studies in a wide range of specialties, with people of all ages.
We are one of 28 NIHR-funded clinical research facilities networked across the UK, enabling collaboration with other sites and access to additional expertise and research infrastructure. Our CRF co-founded, and provides senior leadership to, the UKCRF Network, which develops, shares and implements excellence in CRF operations, workforce development, industry engagement and public involvement to ensure the efficient and effective delivery of studies.
