THIS IS THE DEVELOPMENT SITE!
As a leading destination for clinical research, we offer a range of services and free support to help you design, plan, set-up and deliver research in the UK
We can work with you at any stage of your clinical development pipeline, from providing expertise in disease mechanisms and experimental medicine to support your early stage development programmes, through to supporting the design, set up and delivery of your study protocol in the NHS and social care system. We can also provide access to data, samples and patient cohorts across a broad range of disease areas.
We are the nation's largest funder of health and care research and provide the people, facilities and technology that enables research to thrive. We have transformed research in and for the NHS and helped to shape the health research landscape more broadly. Our evidence is used to improve outcomes for patients, shape policy and strengthen the health and care system.
We were established in 2006 under the government’s health research strategy, Best Research for Best Health. We are primarily funded by the Department of Health and Social Care, but also receive UK aid funding to support research for people in low- and middle-income countries. Working in partnership with the NHS, universities, local government, other research funders, patients and the public, we deliver and enable world-class research that transforms people’s lives, promotes economic growth and advances science.
