Clinical Research Facility

The NIHR UCLH Clinical Research Facility (CRF) is a purpose-built environment dedicated to experimental medicine and clinical research. The CRF provides clinical, laboratory, regulatory and operational support for clinical research studies. We provide researchers with the infrastructure necessary to conduct high-quality research funded by industry or academia. All of our clinical areas and equipment comply with UCLH standards, contributing to the highest level of patient care and safety.

Clinical research facility

The CRF is located across three sites: our original and largest site is on the 4th Floor of 170 Tottenham Court Road and in April 2018, the CRF incorporated the Leonard Wolfson Experimental Neurology Centre CRF, a dedicated neuroscience facility at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery at Queen Square. In December 2020 we opened our new Vaccine Research Centre as a third CRF site to help accelerate the development of new vaccines and treatments during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The CRF’s remit is to progress high quality clinical research in any specialty, but with a specific focus on early-phase clinical trials and experimental medicine. Many of our trials are ‘first-in-human’ and Phase I.
