UK Clinical Research Collaboration
The UK Clinical Research Collaboration brings together major stakeholders that influence clinical research in the UK to provide a strategic approach to the identification of opportunities and obstacles to clinical research and their resolution. The Partnership includes the main UK research funding bodies, academia, the NHS, regulatory bodies, industry and patients.
It aims to re-engineer the clinical research environment through addressing:
- Research infrastructure
- Workforce training
- Regulation and governance
- Research coordination
- Patients and public
The UKCRC Board is chaired by Professor Dame Sally Davies FMedSci, and is made up representatives from all of the UKCRC Partner organisations. The Academy is represented on the Board by Professor David Adams FMedSci.
Membership of this Collaboration contributes to a number of our strategic commitments.
