The importance of excellent and nationally coordinated clinical research is now more evident than ever before, and Irish higher educational institutions involved in clinical research are wholeheartedly committed to its success. It has been recognised by the Board of Directors of MMI-CRDI, which includes directors representative of five HEIs, that while the HEIs will continue to work together extensively on clinical research, strategic research partnerships across HEI's are now delivered through different mechanisms to those contemplated when CRDI was first established.
The Board of CRDI has concluded that the Company should be voluntarily wound up and that process has now been completed.
The Board is indebted to the Members of the Company and its funding bodies for their support since the Company’s establishment and to the very dedicated staff of the company who have worked so diligently across diverse projects.
Some CRDI projects continue in new host institutions and links to those projects can be found below.
