The Clinical Center at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is the world’s largest hospital entirely devoted to clinical research. It is a national resource that makes it possible to rapidly translate scientific observations and laboratory discoveries into new approaches for diagnosing, treating, and preventing disease.
Together, the Hatfield Clinical Research Center and the Magnuson Clinical Center provide compassionate patient care and unparalleled opportunities for advancing clinical research.
The Clinical Center hosts several programs specifically designed to advance bench-to-bedside research.
Clinical trials are a key component of the Intramural Research Program (IRP) portfolio.
