NIHR Cambridge Clinical Research Facility, Cambridge Festival 2022!

A day in the life

Have you ever wondered what it is like to take part in research? Or you want to take part in health research, but not sure what is involved or where to start looking?  Here on the NIHR Clinical Research Facility we research studies for healthy adults and children so that we can compare measurements to patient groups, such as: energy expenditure, whole body x rays, MRI scans and fitness tests. Immy took part in our research and has shared what it is like.

Our questionnaire would provide us with lots of information to help us learn more about our community and raise research awareness. It will take approximately 10 minutes to complete and one person selected randomly will win a £50 Amazon gift voucher. Everyone who completes the survey will be entered into the prize draw.


We would love to feature some of your artwork on our walls of what you think taking part in research looks like.  Remember to include your name, age and how we can contact you.
