UK Boosts Early-Stage Clinical Research with £161 Million Funding

The UK’s National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) has allocated £161 million to fund 28 NIHR Clinical Research Facilities (CRFs) across England. These CRFs will enhance the capacity for early-phase clinical research in NHS hospitals, supporting trials from the first-in-human stage to early safety and efficacy trials. The funding aims to strengthen the UK’s position as a global hub for life sciences and drive innovation in experimental medicine, ultimately translating discoveries into new treatments for patients. The investment demonstrates the government’s commitment to maintaining the UK’s leadership in diverse and groundbreaking research, contributing to the improvement of healthcare services.

Syed Kamall, Minister for Innovation, states how “Funding more CRFs across the country means we can continue to build on this innovation to transform our health service and ensure the NHS is able to deliver world-class care. As we build back better from the pandemic, I am committed to ensuring the UK remains a world leader in diverse, ground-breaking research.”
