The Clinical Trials Group co-ordinates large multi-centre phase III randomised clinical trials, mainly in cancer. This necessitates liaising with clinicians in hospitals both nationally and internationally and also within academic institutions. It is one of the leading trials units in the UK and as such offers good statistical and computing services and a singular opportunity to become involved in clinical research. Individual projects are funded from a variety of sources notably through peer-reviewed grant applications to medical research funding bodies and pharmaceutical organisations.
