Located at the heart of the Cambridge Biomedical Campus (below), the Cambridge Clinical Research Centre (CCRC) comprises of six clinical research facilities located in two linked buildings both with access to Addenbrooke’s Hospital. All facilities support early translational experimental medicine, operating under a single management and governance framework.
Operating costs are funded by an NIHR award for clinical research facilities for experimental medicine; facilities are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The CCRC has a track record of delivering complex innovate translational research and has carried out over 1,000 clinical studies specialties supporting more than 100,000 patients taking part in research.
Two facilities are located in the Addenbrooke’s Centre for Clinical Investigation (ACCI) building, an NIHR/Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Facility for research involving children and young people, an adult outpatient area with investigation and audiology rooms, and a bespoke metabolic research area with body composition measurement facilities. Our teams are highly skilled and trained in intermediate life support (adults and children), managing emergency scenarios, administering trial drugs, chemotherapy, vaccines, monoclonal antibodies, regulatory compliance and in Good Clinical Practice.
Four facilities are located in the CCRC building; each floor has its own dedicated space to conduct specific research:
We work together with the Clinical Trials Unit, Clinical Trials Pharmacy and the Office for Translational Research via an Experimental Medicine Operational Group to coordinate infrastructure for experimental medicine research activity across the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.
