Glasgow Research Facility

The Glasgow Clinical Research Facility (GCRF) was established in 2006 with funding from the Scottish Government via the Chief Scientist Office. It provides state-of-the-art research space across several geographical sites including the £5million Clinical Research Facility at Queen Elizabeth University Hospital Campus. This ensures clinical research is a cornerstone of person-centred healthcare development.

Each research space provides high-quality clinical environments and outreach services where patients and healthy volunteers can take part in international clinical research studies.

Key Partners

Glasgow Biomedicine is a joint initiative between the University of Glasgow and NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde (NHS GG&C). Glasgow Biomedicine brings together the University and NHS GGC hospitals creating an integrated, interdisciplinary centre of excellence for the management and execution of both non-commercial and commercial clinical research. Part of Glasgow Biomedicine, Glasgow Clinical Trials Unit provides specialist services from the GCRF, the Robertson Centre for Biostatistics, and the NHS GG&C R & D department.

The GCRF is a partner in the UK Clinical Research Facility Network (UKCRFN) and is hosting the UKCRFN 2017 Conference with abstracts now being accepted for parallel sessions/workshops and posters.

Our Team

The GCRF employs a team of multidisciplinary staff, supporting a portfolio of over 200 clinical research studies, ranging from complex early phase or novel technique experimental medicine to large population-based public health initiatives.
