What is the Clinical Research Centre (CRC)?
The CRC is a dedicated clinical research facility located on the eleventh floor of the new Royal
London Hospital (RLH) in Whitechapel and forms part of the Barts Health Clinical Research Facility.
Designed to a high specification, the CRC can accommodate a wide range of clinical trials and other research involving patients, providing the highest levels of patient care and safety at all times.
A self-contained unit within the hospital, the CRC benefits from a patient waiting room, patient treatment areas, sample preparation and processing area, and comes fully equipped with fridges, freezers, centrifuges, ECG machines, patient monitors – all the standard clinical equipment needed to conduct research.
The CRC is staffed by highly qualified and skilled Clinical Research Nurses and support staff. Our staff can provide all the assistance you need to make your approved study a success.
How we work
We work with hospital-based clinical researchers who want to conduct a funded clinical trial or other patient-based research.
Our staff are experienced in conducting trials across a wide range of medical conditions and specialities including eczema, epilepsy, hepatology, immunology, infection, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, melanoma, Multiple Sclerosis, psoriasis, surgery, and Ulcerative Colitis.
How can we help your research project?
The primary reason our consultants cite for not taking part in research is a lack of resources: funds, space, facilities, equipment or lack of knowledge and experience to conduct clinical trials.
This is where the CRC can help! We work closely with each investigator to assess their needs, guide them through the study set-up process, ensure regulatory compliance standards are met, deliver their research to time and target and assist with the end of study procedures.
If you thought you couldn’t conduct clinical research at the RLH, then think again!
