Seminar Details

Outline of the PRIMENT Clinical Trials Unit
Monday, 19th March 2012
1pm - 2pm (12.45 for sandwiches)
Seminar Room 1, PCPH, Upper 3rd Floor, UCL (Royal Free Campus)
Speaker: Prof. Irwin Nazareth
Details: Over the last five years a large number of clinical trials units (CTU) in the UK that have been granted registration by the UK Clinical Research Collaboration. Little, however, is known of the need for collaborating with a registered CTU and the exact function of a CTU. UCL has two fully registered CTUs, one of which is PRIMENT. This seminar will provide a brief account of the development of clinical trials units across the UK, the role of CTUs in ensuring the smooth running of clinical trials in accordance with the European Union directives and good clinical practice (GCP) guidance. The seminar will specifically explore the role of PRIMENT in supporting trials in population health. PRIMENT is a collaborative venture between three faculties in UCL and focusses largely on trials in primary care and mental health. The seminar will provide adequate opportunity for questions and will allow the audience to clarify any uncertainties of what is required of a CTU and the expectations of trial grant funding bodies such as the NIHR.
