If you are considering designing or implementing a clinical trial as part of your research study, there are four UKCRC-registered clinical trials units within the Institute of Clinical Trials and Methodology that you may want to approach:
- The Comprehensive Clinical Trials Unit at UCL
- The Cancer Research UK Clinical Trials Centre
- The Medical Research Council Clinical Trials Unit
- PRIMENT Clinical Trials Unit
These four units work very closely so, if you speak to any of them and they feel your study may be more suited to a different group, they will refer your study accordingly.
Advice on trial design for studies that you know will not require a CTU is available from the Research Support Centre Joint Research Office via the JRO admin team and the JRO biostatistics group.
Contacting the Comprehensive Clinical Trials Unit
For general enquiries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Most of our trials have a dedicated e-mail address for trial sites to direct enquiries to. The inbox is monitored by the trial team while the trial is active. Once the trial is closed, the e-mail address is closed and all enquiries should be directed to email@example.com.
If you are interested in participating in a clinical trial that is managed by CCTU, we would encourage you to discuss the trial with your GP/treating clinician so that they can refer you to your local participating site where appropriate.
