Multidisciplinary Team

The NCRF multidisciplinary teams are led by a Senior Research Sister. They have a wide range of skills and experience in clinical research trials from Phase I to Phase IV, with both adults and children.

The teams are experienced in the implementation of:

  • protocol procedures
  • a wide range of clinical assessments
  • specimen collection and processing
  • data collection

All of our nurses and physios are trained in research methods and GCP and our research is undertaken in a dedicated clinical research area.

The team works closely with the clinical trial co-ordinators and data managers ensuring the smooth running of the research. The teams also provide practical support to researchers carrying out clinical research.

For further information about how the NCRF team can help you with your research, contact the Senior Research Sister.
