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.
The GCRF provides training on a range of research related topics including preparing poster presentations, writing a literature review, statistics, laboratory skills and many more. These courses are free to NHSGGC employees.
