Call for UK Clinical Research Collaboration Clinical Trials Unit Registration

The UKCRC Registered Clinical Trials Unit (CTU) Network invites new applications from previously unregistered Clinical Trials Units to undergo the Registration Process, which is designed to help improve the quality of available expertise to carry out clinical trials in the UK.

Applications are aslo invited from all currently Registered Units who will undergo a full review to maintain their registration status at this time. Leading the review is an International Panel of leading world experts in clinical trials.

Clinical Trials Units are specialist units that bring together the expertise needed to undertake a clinical trial or other well designed study. Running a study is a complex process and Registered Units need to have the expertise to design, coordinate and analyse multi-centre clinical trials or other well designed studies, ensuring that they are conducted in line with appropriate standards and regulations.

To be eligible to apply, Units have to demonstrate they are capable of centrally coordinating multi-centre clinical trials and other well designed studies with responsibilities related to the design, conduct, data management, publicity, analysis and reporting of a study.
