We are expanding our substantial portfolio of studies, focusing on patient engagement and delivering excellence in experimental medicine including gastrointestinal and liver disorders, respiratory, musculoskeletal and hearing disorders.
A key strength is trials involving imaging: Nottingham is the birthplace of MRI, for which Sir Peter Mansfield won the Nobel Prize. We operate a 2000m2 hub and spoke model network of CRFs, maximising efficiency and access to medical expertise across our large multisite hospital. The facility is designed to deliver clinical effectiveness, safety and a positive patient/volunteer experience in a consistent way.
