Local Specialty Groups
Local Specialty Groups bring together researchers to provide a local focus for activity in that disease area.
Each CLRN has identified their areas of strength at a local level where there is the commitment, capability and capacity to support NIHR Clinical Research Network Portfolio studies. CLRNs have also identified areas for development to support growth in the future and these groups all feed into the relevant national Specialty Group.
County Durham and Tees Valley (CDTV) CLRN has put forward 11 areas to form Local Specialty Groups. LSGs will provide a local focus for activity, researchers and portfolio study management within a particular topic.
