Enjoy a seamless transition from bench to clinic

A location on the Campus enables you to form relationships with key opinion leaders at an early stage in your research and maintain those interactions as you transition from the bench through to clinical studies.  With an average of 1000 active studies in progress at any time, high recruitment rates, dedicated clinical trial wards, and a one-stop service for sponsors, Cambridge University Hospitals is one of the leading centres in the UK for clinical trials.


Dr Ian Wilkinson
We are willing to meet innovative companies to review their products and services ahead of planning clinical studies. Based on our collective experience and skills, we may be able to predict issues at an early stage and help companies address them before they start expensive clinical studies.
