Work has begun on NUI Galway’s €20m Clinical Research Facility and Translational Research Facility (CRF-TRF). The building will facilitate cutting-edge medical research side-by-side with patient care in University Hospital Galway (UHG). This sharing of medical expertise and accommodation including HSE in-patient facilities will help inform new strands of clinical research.

The TRF building is located on the grounds of UHG and is directly adjacent to the University’s Clinical Science Institute, UHG’s Critical Care Facilities, Ward Accommodation Block and the Maternity Wards.

The major benefits of this facility include the ability to provide access to cutting-edge clinical trials and access to novel therapies for patients in the West of Ireland. Clinical care provided in a research-intensive environment has been proven internationally to result in the best patient outcomes. As a result, patient care will improve, and the ability of our hospital to attract and retain the very best medical and allied health staff will be improved.”

The TRF will be on the second and third floor of the building and will accommodate open and flexible lab spaces. It will have direct links to the Clinical Science Institute where many of the University’s medical students are located, at both ground and second floor levels. The TRF will be fully owned and operated by NUI Galway.

The facility is has been funded by a significant graduate donor and the support of the Corrib Medical Network. If you would like more information, please contact Catherine Conroy or T: 091 492972
