CRDI works with its partner institutions, and collaborators in academia and industry, to develop and deliver clinical and translational research programmes. We are actively involved in project management and coordination of the following programmes:
Corporate Enabling of Clinical Research (CECR)
The rationale for this initiative was the belief that the difficulties experienced by academic institutions would be better addressed in a cooperative manner and with input from all stakeholders across the health sector, academia, funding and regulatory bodies.
CRDI Research Consortia and Networks
Clinical Research Development Ireland aims to promote a strong multi-disciplinary and cross-institutional collaborative research environment. As such, we are facilitating a central information point that presents an overview of clinical and translational research consortia involving our partner institutions. Here, these research consortia take the opportunity to present a succinct view of their aims and collaborative strengths.
Prostate cancer (PCRC)
The Prostate Cancer Research Consortium is a multi-disciplinary, trans-institutional collaboration bringing together researchers from UCD, TCD, RCSI and DCU along with five teaching hospitals in a combined effort to identify novel disease biomarkers for earlier detection and more reliable prognosis for prostate cancer.
