Children’s Research Space 

Our new Children’s Research Facility (CRF) officially opened in June 2017! Research Space was purpose built for children and young people who are taking part in research studies. Our facility includes specialist sensory equipment, including an interactive floor projection system and a 3D interactive distraction system.

Take a look at the Research Space information page to find out more!
