Biobank and clinical research support
The UCL biobanking platform has been developed with the aim of maximising the benefit of UCL's biospecimen collections for translational research.
For further details of UCL's resources, specimen collections and regulatory policies please go to the UCL Biobank site. The Biobank Facilitator is Dr Kirstin Goldring.
Research Support Centre
The Research Support Centre (RSC) brings together all the clinical research management and support services for UCL, University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and Royal Free Hampstead NHS Trust.
The centre encompasses a wide range of expertise and facilities. By co-ordinating these resources, we can provide researchers with a package of support that is integrated, high quality and streamlined – and clearly accountable.
Once a researcher has a proposal for high quality research that will benefit patients, they can access all the help and resources they need through one gateway. This includes support with the approval process and funding applications and help setting up clinical trials.
The Research Support Centre is made up of the following:
- Joint Research Office: Covering UCL, UCLH and Royal Free Hampstead NHS Trust, this office supports clinical investigators with the design, set up and approval of new clinical trials and other research projects.
- UCLH/UCL NIHR Comprehensive Biomedical Research Centre management office: Now in its fifth year the CBRC is the driver for experimental medicine.
- UCLH/UCL Clinical Research Facility: This 20-bed facility in the Elizabeth Garret Anderson Wing of University College Hospital provides a high quality research environment and Good Clinical Practice trained research nurses and other staff, to ensure the safe conduct of clinical trials and other research.
- UCL Clinical Trials Unit: This clinical trials unit provides leadership for clinical trials at UCL and supports actual delivery of trials and studies.
