“C-TRIC is a NI based regional research asset contracted by the NHS Western Trust and external companies with a strong focus on patient care and our community”.
C-TRIC is a state-of-the-art clinical research facility, as impressive as it is unique. C-TRIC is a not-for-profit personalised medicine institute based on the Altnagelvin Area Hospital site and connects patients directly to research opportunities in the North West area and beyond. Created as a one of a kind partnership between Derry City and Strabane District Council, Ulster University and the Western Health and Social Care Trust in late 2008, C-TRIC has been expanding its portfolio of exciting research ever since, and continues to be supported through core funding from the HSC R&D Division of the Public Health Agency.
Our position enables us to facilitate translational and clinical research through providing specialist workspace and tailored services for academic researchers, clinical researchers and biotechnology industry researchers to translate research findings into innovative medical practices and ultimately improve health outcomes. We are successful in delivering large research studies and excel in patient recruitment due to our trusted position within the NHS. We have many years of success providing bio-incubation space for life and health science companies. Our facility aims to reduce both time and costs associated with research and development through streamlining the process of taking developments from the laboratory to the marketplace through a bench to bedside approach.
