The Warwick Clinical Trials Unit specialises in the development and delivery of large multicentre clinical trials to inform clinical practice in the NHS and throughout the world in a variety of clinical fields.
Our portfolio currently includes trials in emergency and critical care, trauma, orthopaedics, rehabilitation and cancer.
We have considerable expertise and experience in cluster randomised trials and trials of complex interventions, as well as systematic reviews, health economic evaluations and methodological research.
WCTU has a multidisciplinary approach with each trial involving a variety of professionals including clinicians, methodologists and specialist administrative staff. We work on a collaborative basis, with members of our academic and research staff as co-applicants, as appropriate.
Initial approaches regarding prospective collaborations may be made either directly to a Chief Investigator of (where there is an existing research relationship or a known shared interest) or by contacting ctucollaborations at warwick dot ac dot uk as detailed below.
In all cases, requests for collaboration should ideally be received at least 3 months before the funder's submission deadline. This allows WCTU time to review and develop the grant proposal, and schedule any activity required.
