Taoiseach launches new HRB Clinical Research Facility in Galway

20 October 2015

Facility will be a game changer for clinical research in the Saolta Hospital group especially.

The HRB Clinical Research Facility and the Lambe Institute for Translational Research will provide Irish researchers with state of the art facilities to conduct national and international research.

Opening the facility, An Taoiseach said he believed it was a place where miracles would happen. The ultimate goal of the CRF will be to offer every patient admitted to the hospital group the opportunity to participate in a clinical trial.

Professor Martin O'Donnell, the Director of the HRB Clinical Research Facility, and Professor Tim O'Brien, Dean of Medicine at NUI Galway explain how the facility will work in two videos on the HRB You Tube Channel.
