An award winning Clinical Trials Unit
Based at Warwick Medical School, the Warwick Clinical Trials Unit (WCTU) was established in 2005.
An award winning clinical trials unit, WCTU received full registration status from the UKCRC in November 2007.
Our purpose built facilities were made possible thanks to funding from the Wolfson Foundation and Advantage West Midlands through its Birmingham Science City Translational Medicine, Clinical Research and Infrastructure Trials Platform.
A unique approach
WCTU is interdisciplinary with collaboration between clinical trialists, statisticians, economists, clinical experts and project managers.
With expertise in both designing and conducting trials, we specialise in trials investigating complex health states and interventions. Our programmes of work draw together quantitative and qualitative methodologies in an evaluation framework. High quality, randomised evidence is generated to inform modern clinical and health care practice.
Our research themes
WCTU's major strands of work are:
- Emergency and Critical Care
- Maternal Health
- Surgery, Pain and Rehabilitation
