The Comprehensive Clinical Trials Unit at UCL


Comprehensive Clinical Trials Unit

The Comprehensive Clinical Trials Unit at UCL (Comprehensive CTU) collaborates with researchers to design, conduct, analyse and publish clinical trials and other well-designed studies.

The CCTU is a registered CTU and coordinates multi-centre clinical trials (i.e. has overall responsibility for the design, development, recruitment, data management and analysis of trials) with robust systems to ensure the highest quality standards of conduct and delivery of clinical trials.

The CCTU provides clinical, statistical and trial operations leadership. It also facilitates the delivery of high quality, regulatory compliant clinical trials of both investigational medicinal products (which must be conducted in compliance with the UK Regulations governing the conduct of clinical trials of Investigational Medicinal Products (IMP)) and other non-IMP trials and studies.

The CCTU is part of UCL's Institute of Clinical Trials and Methodology along with the Cancer Research UK & UCL Cancer Trials Centre, the MRC Clinical Trials Unit at UCL, and PRIMENT Clinical Trials Unit.
