Welcome to the Surrey Clinical Research Centre

The Surrey CRC is a core human research resource within the Faculty of Health & Medical Sciences, University of Surrey.  It comprises of a MHRA Phase I Supplementary Accredited Clinical Research Facility and a Clinical Trials Unit that together cover all aspects of trial design, set-up, trial conduct, data management, data analysis and reporting from single-site to global multi-centre trials.

The Clinical Research Facility is a specialist clinical pharmacology unit housing a 12-bed ward and 12 individual bedrooms in a purpose-designed building, adjacent to the Royal Surrey County Hospital. Since 1999 we have provided industry-leading services to pharmaceutical companies for trials at all stages from Phase I, first-in-human, through to Phase IV patient trials. In addition to our work with leading pharmaceutical companies we collaborate with small biotech organisations, charitable organisations, basic science and clinical academic colleagues on a range of studies including CTIMP, medical device and interventional studies.

The Clinical Trials Unit provides expertise to support the design, management and analysis of global multi-centre trials.  The CTU has a full service electronic data capture (Promasys) that supports remote randomisation and eCRF completion.  The team of highly trained staff undertake trial management and governance activities including trial coordination, data management, analysis, trial monitoring and pharmacovigilance.

The Centre has particular expertise in sleep, psychopharmacology, oncology, immunology and vaccine development but is rapidly developing a broad therapeutic portfolio. We have a prestigious track record of over 15 years’ experience undertaking clinical trials in both volunteer and patient populations.
