Providing Excellence in Clinical Research Delivery

The National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) Sheffield Clinical Research Facility (CRF) is part of the NIHR and hosted by Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in partnership with the University of Sheffield.

The NIHR funds, enables and delivers world-leading health and social care research that improves people’s health and wellbeing and promotes economic growth.

NIHR Clinical Research Facilities (CRFs) are purpose-built facilities in NHS hospitals where researchers can conduct studies. The NIHR has awarded £161 million over five years to 28 CRF facilities across England, to support early-phase and complex studies.

In 2022, the NIHR Sheffield CRF was awarded £7.9m in funding which will support the development and testing of new treatments for diseases, many of which currently have no cure. This funding award covers 2022- 2027.
