What is Scientia Clinical Research?

Scientia Clinical Research is the first purpose-built, publicly funded clinical trials facility in NSW.  We have the infrastructure to perform both first-in-human and first-in-patient studies, as well as later phase studies, across a wide range of therapeutic disciplines, including oncology and haematology.

We are co-located within a major research precinct with Prince of Wales Hospital, Sydney Children’s Hospital, Royal Hospital for Women, UNSW Sydney and the Lowy Cancer Research Centre.
