Our dedicated and purpose-built clinical research facility brings world-class research and experimental medicines to our patients.
The NIHR Manchester Clinical Research Facility (CRF) comprises four dedicated experimental medicine research units at The Christie NHS Foundation Trust, Manchester Royal Infirmary (MRI), Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital (RMCH) and Wythenshawe Hospital. CRFs provide dedicated space and a safe, quality assured environment for delivering clinical research studies. Manchester CRF supports adult and children’s studies across a diverse range of clinical areas.
Hosted by MFT, Manchester CRF is one of 19 clinical research facilities funded by the NIHR across the country. This support from the NIHR is a quality stamp of the work we do. Manchester CRF at MFT also received support from the Wellcome Trust.
