NIHR CRN research

The Clinical Research Network: Metabolic and Endocrine theme supports the set up and delivery of clinical research within the NHS.  We work alongside clinicians, commercial companies and patient organisations to provide an infrastructure to deliver research trials.

Research is important to make new advances available to patients and to improve the standard of care, in the areas of prevention, screening and diagnosis, treatment and quality of life.
