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.
Contacting the Comprehensive Clinical Trials Unit
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
