UCL Priment Clinical Trials Unit

We work with researchers to advance the quality, range and design of clinical trials to improve the health of the population.

We assist researchers to design and conduct high-quality randomised trials and studies in mental health, primary care and behavioural change interventions. We are a UK Clinical Research Collaboration (UKCRC) registered unit offering academic and scientific input to studies alongside operational support. This means that we work closely with investigators to develop methodology for their study. 

Our work supports a diverse portfolio of studies from ageing to infection, which leads us to collaborate with a number of different funders, including NIHR and Alzheimer’s Society. Successfully completed trials have included the development of a digital management programme for type 2 diabetes, home-based health promotion interventions for vulnerable older people and a website for improving contraception choices.

PRIMENT CTU is a partnership between 3 UCL departments:

We collaborate with internal and external researchers to develop and/or evaluate complex interventions in primary care, psychiatric and community settings.
