Clinical Research Facility Open Day
This event has ended.
On the 18th of May the Clinical Research Facility (CRF) at the University Hospital of Wales will open its doors to the public as part of the celebrations of Research Awareness Week, leading to International Clinical Trials Day.
The CRF provides a high quality clinical environment in which patients can undergo research programmes safely and effectively according to scientifically robust, ethically approved studies, including both clinical trials and other forms of clinical investigation. At the facility, 14 diseases are treated, and around 60% of the clinical trials run at the facility are cancer trials. Vital facilities like these allow new treatments to be assessed, and without them we would not see modern breakthroughs in cancer treatment.
The event will run from 2 – 4pm, with guests invited in for two hour sessions. Each session will involve a self-guided tour of the facilities where you will have the opportunity to see some of their cutting edge equipment demonstrated. You will get to hear directly from researchers and data managers and will learn the intricacies of how a trial is run and how each patient’s participation contributes to improved cancer treatment for the future.
Please note that parking at the hospital site is restricted, so please allow yourself a little extra time if you are travelling by car. The Clinical Research Facility can be found using this map.
