Our goal is to support and promote high quality clinical research for the health benefits of our population and to play our part in enabling Scotland to deliver world-class health outcomes.

For those who wish to set up new clinical research projects we provide a streamlined support service from study inception to study closedown, including help with writing funding application, protocols, and necessary approvals.
