The NIHR Clinical Research Network deliver for Haemophilia
Haemophilia is a rare disease affecting about 6000 people in the UK. Recently, many new treatments for haemophilia have been developed resulting in the need for many competing studies to be performed in the UK simultaneously. Delivery of these studies, on time and to target, has been successfully coordinated by the NIHR Clinical Research Network
National Institute for Health Research:
UK Comprehensive Research Network
Support for studies can be accessed through your Comprehensive Local Research Network (CLRN) in England with other networks in Devolved Nations. Many of these networks will have a local haematology lead. If you are interested to see what studies are currently on the national research portfolio and eligible for UK CRN support, click on http://public.ukcrn.org.uk/search/ and search for studies of interest by entering a search term (eg haemophilia, platelets etc) in the title/acronym box and clicking “find”.
