“ It is certainly important to be looking for cures to medical disorders, but it is equally important to conduct research on human health and well-being. ” Stephen LaBerge.
PARC is a 6 bed, 2 chair clinical facility capable of conducting clinical trials across all stages of development, fully equipped with all of the latest medical technology to ensure the safety of our healthy volunteers and patients.
We are able to provide 4 private rooms for clinical assessment, as well as shared entertainment and meeting room facilities. It provides an environment to allow close and intensive monitoring of participants involved in complex studies such as first in man dosing studies and less complex outpatient based studies.
Full support and equipment is available for studies that require intensive subject monitoring. In addition to executing studies ourselves, the PARC Unit can also be made available to other local investigators planning to undertake specialised studies.
Due to our location at the Royal Adelaide Hospital and our affiliation with the University of Adelaide our unit has all the facilities of a major public teaching hospital and a leading Australian University.
