What is a CTU?
A CTU is a specialist unit that has been set up to support the design, conduct, analysis and publication of clinical trials and other well-designed studies.
It has the capability to provide specialist expert statistical, epidemiological and other methodological advice and coordination to undertake successful clinical trials.
In addition, most CTUs have expertise in the coordination of trials that involve investigational medicinal products. These trials must comply with UK regulations that govern the conduct of clinical trials, as resulting from the EU directive.
The CTU cannot act as a sponsor. Please contact your R&D Manager to ascertain who will take on the role of sponsor. Written confirmation is required for CTU support.
