Glasgow Research Facility

paragraph image

The Glasgow Clinical Research Facility (CRF) is an exciting new initiative in a city that is already acclaimed for its clinical research legacy. The changing legal and regulatory environment in which we all must now work has meant that the centralisation of research services is essential. The Glasgow CRF aims to provide a framework for this centralisation process and, in so doing, to offer new levels of support to investigators and patients across the city.
The Glasgow CRF was established on April 1st 2006 by an NHS Clinical Research Grant Agreement with the CSO.
The Glasgow CRF is therefore an NHS initiative but we work closely with partners in higher education - principally the Universities of Glasgow, Strathclyde, Paisley and Glasgow Caledonian University.
