Research Engaged Patients
We not only want people to take part in research – we want them to have a great experience, whether they are taking part as a patient or as a healthy volunteer.
As a major regional teaching hospital, the NIHR Cambridge Biomedical Research Centre hosts a large and diverse patient population. To support our research volunteers during research projects, we have a dedicated inpatient and outpatient spaces in the NIHR Cambridge Clinical Research Facility, where participants can take part in research in a calm and relaxing setting, away from the hospital environment, and where they are looked after by a highly trained and experienced research team.
We are grateful to all those who contribute to our research year-on-year and without them our research would not be possible. Our discoveries are their discoveries.
