High-quality research and facilities

Metro South Health and the Translational Research Institute (TRI) have a strong reputation for the quality of its scientific and medical research. Metro South Health and the TRI are internationally recognised for our highly trained clinical workforce and the high-quality data produced by our experienced, trained (and accredited) research teams. Australian clinical research sites also have high-quality clinical facilities with state-of-the-art equipment for testing, treatment and analysis. These characteristics of the Metro South Health and the TRI environment ensure high quality research conduct and generate confidence in the findings of research projects and clinical trials conducted in Australia.

Clinical Research Facility (CRF)

The TRI Clinical Research Facility (CRF) is a multi-use research centre situated at the Princess Alexandra Hospital. It has been designed to provide the special facilities and equipment needed by clinical researchers. This is to help them to investigate the causes of disease, and to conduct research studies of new medicines and medical equipment.

The CRF was opened for participants in December 2014. The facility has been designed as a restful environment, with light filled spaces and comfortable, spacious treatment rooms and waiting area. The clinic is not a healthcare facility; however it is situated within the main hospital building. This is to ensure the rapid access to emergency medical teams should this be needed.
