Working with the Life Sciences

The NIHR Clinical Research Network Children has been enormously successful in integrating clinical research into NHS clinical service provision, and both developing and delivering a large practice changing portfolio of clinical trials.


Our Studies

Children homepage

Experimental medicine

We assist the discovery and evaluation of new drugs through experimental studies of promising compounds, including pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) studies.

Due to the requirements of many of these studies, we work closely with Clinical Research Facilities (CRFs) and other experienced units with access to highly specialised research teams and advanced equipment.

If you have any questions on Experimental Medicine, please contact or visit the Network’s life-sciences pages for information about commercial studies.


You can find out more about Children's studies in your area through the UK Clinical Trials Gateway.
