Research excellence

The Warwick Clinical Trials Unit (WCTU) has a strong track record in delivering excellent research. Established in 2005, we received full registration status from the UKCRC in 2007.

We care about patient centred outcomes and we want to find ways to improve them. Our trials and investigations help us to do that. We're not afraid to ask the difficult questions, by leading and supporting clinical trials that seek to find answers. We have a reputation for challenging long-established norms.
