About us

The NIHR-Wellcome King's Clinical Research Facility (CRF) is a purpose-built facility to support clinical trials in mental health, neurology, general and acute medicine.  It is situated within King's College Hospital, London, UK, on the Denmark Hill campus of King's College London, close to our partner South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust.  Our site houses high-quality experimental medicine facilities, where specialist clinical research and support staff work together on patient-orientated commercial and non-commercial studies.

The King's CRF is academically supported by King’s Health Partners, an Academic Health Sciences Centre collaboration between King’s College London, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, and King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

We are one of 23 Clinical Research Facilities for Experimental Medicine supported nationally by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).  Clinical Research Facilities exist to help speed up the translation of scientific advances for the benefit of patients, and work closely with related parts of the NIHR infrastructure, including our partner NIHR Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre.
