The NIHR Exeter Clinical Research Facility's mission is to facilitate collaborative translational clinical research. It specialises in experimental research and developing research ideas which will help understand the mechanisms of disease and lead to changes in patient care. The clinical research facility is also engaged in recruiting patient cohorts to enable excellent genetic research to flourish, and from which patients may later be invited to take part in more detailed studies as part of the NIHR Exeter Clinical Research Facility, the NIHR research networks or PenCLAHRC (the Peninsula Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care) projects. The NIHR Exeter CRF is also involved collaboratively in network studies. As part of this mission we aim to nurture clinical researchers for the future.
