Is My Project Research?

To find out whether your project is classed as research, visit the NHS Health Research Authority Toolkit

For any study that is eligible or applying for network support, whether commercially or non-commercially sponsored, the Clinical Research Network Study Support Service can offer a range of services across the research pathway.  Advisors can help in study feasibility, regulatory approvals, assistance with site identification, costings, set up and delivery to time and target.
