The NIHR Imperial BRC provides funding to underpin a wide variety of experimental medicine facilities, technology platforms and core supporting services. Most notably the BRC invests significantly in four Cross-Cutting Themes, which provide cutting edge technologies but which also conduct research programmes in their own right.

As well as technologies, the BRC supports specialist services for our researchers. The Imperial Clinical Trials Unit provides expertise in clinical trial design, delivery and management. The Patient Experience Research Centre coordinates input from patients and the public in experimental medicine studies, and provides multi-disciplinary support, advice, education and training in developing patient involvement and engagement.
