MHH CRC Core Facility: Expertise

Top-level early-phase clinical research

The MHH CRC Core Facility is an experienced team of 14 medical professionals. We act as an early-phase unit and site management organization to ensure that our partners in industry collaborate smoothly with the specialized clinics of the Hannover Medical School (MHH). At the CRC Hannover, we conduct studies on numerous indications in our specialized clinics. Our out-hospital facilities and the expertise of leading medical experts create a safe, comfortable environment for patients and healthy volunteers. Since beginning our first projects at the CRC Hannover in the summer of 2014, we have initiated about 10 clinical trials a year, and our capabilities and resources will allow us to continue growing.


Clinical trial experience

The MHH CRC Core Facility’s study team mainly initiates and conducts early phase I, IIa, and IIb studies. Translational approaches and validation of drug targets in early-phase clinical trials are a special focus of our work.

The MHH CRC Core Facility team is responsible for professionally organizing and implementing early-phase clinical trials to extremely exacting standards. The team also acts as a site management organization and provides services to the clinics and institutes of MHH for jointly implementing complex multidisciplinary study programs.

The high-quality infrastructure of the CRC Hannover, in combination with the personnel resources of the MHH CRC Core Facility, makes it possible to conduct state-of-the-art clinical and pharmacological trials.
