Support for world-class early phase clinical trials in East London 

The Wolfson Foundation has awarded an amazing £1 million towards the building costs of the new Clinical Research Facility at The Royal London Hospital. 

The new, Barts Charity funded, Clinical Research Facility will significantly expand the range and scale of early phase clinical trials which our partners, Barts Health NHS Trust and Queen Mary University of London, can undertake.  

“The Wolfson Foundation is delighted to support a project with the potential to make a significant contribution to better understand and treat a range of diseases. We will be watching with considerable interest the progress of the Clinical Research Facility and the early phase trials that it enables.” 
Paul Ramsbottom, Chief Executive of the Wolfson Foundation
“We are so grateful for the Wolfson Foundation’s commitment to this important project, and for being part of an ambitious plan to grow scientifically and clinically important clinical trial activity.” 
Fiona Miller Smith, CEO, Barts Charity

Opportunities for patients in East London to take part in potentially life-changing, early phase clinical trials have been limited. But that is set to change.
