Philanthropic impact story
At any one time, more than 1000 clinical trials are being conducted across the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, the largest gathering of clinical, pharmaceutical and biomedical research specialists in Europe. These trials are a crucial step in the design of new medicines and medical devices – translating ideas that started in a research laboratory into new treatments for patients.
