Are you interested in using your skills to bring new experimental treatments to patients through research?

CRF multi 

This free event will be of interest to:

  • Principal investigators (PI)
  • Clinicians interested in becoming a PI (the CRF can support you through mentorships and specific taught modules)
  • Academic trainees, or medical or foundation level students interested in multi-professional training

In Greater Manchester (GM), our research is already making a significant contribution towards solving some of the world’s greatest health challenges.  To commemorate International Clinical Trials Day on 20 May, we’re inviting existing and future researchers to join us for breakfast/lunch to learn more about how our clinical research facility can support all aspects of study design and delivery,  as well as supporting those aspiring to develop a research portfolio.  

By providing dedicated space and a safe, quality assured environment, Clinical Research Facilities play a key role in facilitating experimental medicine research.   This allows our patients the opportunity to participate in a wide range of studies, including those providing access to new therapies.

In 2014/15, our CRFs were in the top two nationally for the number of research studies conducted, subjects recruited and publications.  

Now, through a £12.5m investment via the NIHR Clinical Research Facility (CRF) scheme we have an exciting opportunity to build on our previous success. The funding will enable the management of our existing CRFs under a single management structure with operations at CMFT, The Christie and UHSM.  This will facilitate more cross-disciplinary working, increase the impact of clinical research and drive economies of scale.

Greater Manchester was also successful in securing £28.5m via the NIHR Manchester Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) scheme and this event will be an opportunity to learn more about the pioneering research that has been funded through this grant.

  • Increase engagement with the life sciences industry
  • Increase training in experimental medicine
