National Institute for Health Research UCLH Clinical Research Facility

Research at UCLH is now focusing on Covid-19. This means that all studies have been paused unless they are researching Covid-19 or where treatment is essential for serious, or life-threatening conditions. For ongoing studies, unless they are priority  there will be no new screening or recruitment.

Over 30 Covid-19 research proposals are being reviewed and fast tracked, some of them initiated by UCLH and UCL, others part of national and international trials.

The NIHR UCLH Clinical Research Facility (CRF) is a purpose built environment dedicated to experimental medicine and clinical research. The CRF is located on the 4th Floor of 170 Tottenham Court Road and provides clinical space, a laboratory, a dispensing pharmacy and specialist clinical and administrative staff. 

Since April 2018, the NIHR UCLH CRF incorporates the Leonard Wolfson Experimental Neurology Centre CRF, a dedicated neuroscience experimental medicine facility at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery at Queen Square. 

The mission of the CRF is to facilitate the translation of basic science knowledge into improved patient care through new diagnostics and therapies.

The facility provides a coordinated infrastructure to support patients and volunteers and help clinical investigators to conduct clinical research safely, efficiently and cost-effectively. 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. Some of the trials will be using drugs for the first time in humans.
