Research centres

Discover our research centres, where we can justifiably state that our research activity embraces fully the ‘bench-to-bedside’ concept.

Surrey Clinical Research Centre

The Surrey Clinical Research Centre (CRC) is a combined Clinical Research Facility that can provide expert advice regarding all aspects of clinical trial design and implementation, from setup, management and conduct to data management, data analysis and reporting for single site and global multi-centre trials.

As a Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency-accredited experimental medicine unit for early phase trials, the CRC provides an enabling facility for translational research. Its current servicing of University sleep and oncology research has led to world-leading research outputs.

The facility is MHRA Phase I accredited. Situated in a purpose-designed building adjacent to the Royal Surrey County Hospital, it contains a twelve-bed ward and twelve state-of-the-art individual sleep/intensive physiological monitoring laboratories.

Surrey Human Performance Institute

The Surrey Human Performance Institute, based within the Surrey Sports Park, which provides a range of physiological tests and lab-based assessments to help both elite athletes and the public optimise their fitness and performance. The facility offers a range of services such as the VO2 max test, sweat testing and blood tests.

Equipment includes:

  • Isokinetic Dynamometer
  • SRM and WattBike cycle ergometers
  • Bioelectrical impedance
  • Breath-by-breath gas analysis equipment
  • SVT hand-eye coordination trainer

Many practical classes from our BSc Sport and Exercise Sciences degree utilise the facilities in the Human Performance Institute and the strength and conditioning suite.
