CRICBristol, Clinical Research and Imaging Centre

wellbeing / work


CRICBristol, Bristol’s Clinical Research and Imaging Centre, is a joint venture between the University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust and the University of Bristol. This state-of-the-art research and imaging centre opened in February 2011. As a result of this unique collaboration between the University and the NHS people in Bristol and the South West are benefiting from the latest, high-quality, cutting-edge research being conducted locally.

The facilities include a Siemens 3Tesla Magneton Skyra MRI scanner, funded by the Wolfson Foundation, a two-room sleep laboratory and four clinical investigation suites alongside a laboratory, meeting rooms, and access to high performance computing facilities.

The proposal included refurbishment to existing facilities as well as an extension to house the new CRIC, a co-located Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) facility, a Clinical Investigation Suite (CIS) and related facilities.
