State-of-the Art Minor Procedures Room Premiers at Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Facility Open Day

As part of National Science week, The Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Facility are holding a public Open Day on Friday 13th March 2009. The event will take place between 10.00 am and 4.00 pm and will be an opportunity for you to come into the WTCRF to find out more about what they do. At the Open Day, visitors will be able to see the large scale designs and architectural drawing of a state-of-the-art Minor Procedures Room, which will be opening at the beginning of April this year. Funded as part of the Biomedical Research Centre tissue injury and regeneration theme, and with funding from the Northwest Regional Development Agency, the room situated in the WTCRF will be used by researchers from across our five partner Trusts for an array of different study types, from minor plastic surgery and dermatology to biopsies and ophthalmic procedures. It is anticipated that this facility will be the premier facility for minor and clean procedures and also bring new researchers into Manchester. The WTCRF Open Day will be an interactive day looking at clinical research and the impact of clinical research on the health service over the last sixty years. They will be providing a number of activities, tours and presentations for people of all ages, which will be informative, educational but, most of all, fun. There will also be opportunities to meet their staff, to find out more about what they do and to see what a difference clinical research makes.
