NIHR Leeds Clinical Research Facility

NIHR Leeds Clinical Research Facility carries out high quality early stage and experimental clinical trials to help new treatments and tests reach patients more quickly.

Our core funding comes from the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and we work with industry, research councils and charities to run over 100 early stage, experimental or complex trials each year. We provide a welcoming, professional and safe environment for patients taking part in our trials, supported by clinical services within Leeds Teaching Hospitals. Patients and the public play a key role in our research, not only as participants, but also helping 


us in shaping the direction of our work and in the design of research initiated in Leeds. Our work includes a wide range of disease specialties, including research in paediatrics, neuroscience and gastroenterology, but we have particular expertise and a strong track-record in the following areas:

Cardiovascular research: heart failure and coronary disease

Musculoskeletal research: conditions such as arthritis and rheumatism
Oncology research: cancers that involve solid tumour
Haematology research:  including cancers of the blood 
Oral and dental health
