Welcome to UCD Clinical Research Centre (CRC)

UCD CRC, supported by the School of Medicine and the College of Health and Agricultural Sciences as a critical element of their research infrastructure, supports and advances high quality, impactful investigator-led translational and personalised medicine research. This research is conducted at the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, St Vincent’s University Hospital and the National Maternity Hospital, Holles Street.

Since its’ establishment in 2006, the CRC has demonstrated the benefits of the university-hospital research model in line with the development of CRC’s education programme and the growth in research activities underpinning the continued sustainability of the Centre.

The last few years have demonstrated that research in medical sciences is central to addressing the major health challenges that we face as a society. The CRC will continue to support a wide range of research and our flexible model of delivery will enable that support to be sustained in the long term.

One of the Centre’s key commitments is to ensure that as many people as possible, irrespective of their geographical location, have access to cutting edge research and care.

In this regard, the CRC in initiated a site expansion project in 2019 that now includes Wexford General Hospital and St Luke’s General Hospital, Carlow/Kilkenny as CRC research sites. These new research sites will deliver the benefits of participation in clinical and translational research to a much wider cohort of patients.
