About HRB CRCI
Health Research Board Clinical Research Coordination Ireland, HRB-CRCI, is an independent integrated national clinical research network, providing centralised support in the conduct of multicentre clinical trials (both commercial and academic) across Ireland. It is funded by extramural grants from the Health Research Board (HRB) and Enterprise Ireland(EI), supported by the its partner Universities and is hosted by Clinical Research Development Ireland (CRDI).
In 2014, the Directors of six University Clinical Research Facilities/Centres (CRF/Cs), (at University College Cork, National University of Ireland Galway, Royal College of Surgeons Ireland, University College Dublin (2 centres) and Trinity College Dublin), responded to a HRB and EI invitation to submit a proposal for the development of a network to support the conduct of multicentre clinical trials across the island of Ireland. Their application was successful and led to the establishment of HRB CRCI as a collaborative partnership of the university based CRF/Cs and their associated hospitals. In 2018 two new partner centres joined the group namely the Health Research Institute Clinical Research Support Unit at University Hospital Limerick and the National Children’s Research Centre at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin, Dublin.
The HRB CRCI central office gives overarching support and expertise to manage and coordinate the networks activities. The eight partner CRF/Cs provide the infrastructure, physical space and facilities and experienced research and specialist support staff needed for the successful conduct of world-class patient-focused research.
