The Surrey Clinical Trials Unit (CTU) is part of the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences (FHMS) at the University of Surrey. The Surrey CTU is an academic trials unit that has the experience, expertise and infrastructure to develop, organise and manage high quality, Phase II and III multi-centre, randomised controlled trials (including trials of Investigational Medicinal Products) of national and international importance.
The CTU’s proven expertise includes Cancer, Gastroenterology, Palliative Care, Endocrinology, Phase I and in particular, pragmatic trials as well as trials of complex interventions. In addition, the CTU has experience of co-ordinating trials for collecting real world evidence (RWE) through collaborations with Clinical Informatics & Health Outcomes Research Group. Members of the Surrey Health Economics Centre (SHEC) work closely with the Surrey CTU in order to provide expert health economics input whenever necessary.
Gastro & Hepatology
Phase I Trials
We partner with investigators at a local and national level to deliver high quality trials that directly influence clinical practice nationally and internationally. We have experienced staff who can work with researchers in developing and delivering research for MRC, NIHR, HTA, CRUK and other grant awarding bodies.
Surrey CTU is a formal partnership between the University of Surrey and Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (RSCH) and has a strong working relationship with Surrey Health Partners, the Kent Surrey Sussex Academic Health Science Network (KSS AHSN) and other national Clinical Trials Units.
The CTU works closely with the Surrey arm of the NIHR Research Design Service (RDS) South East and together we offer support and advice on funding applications and all aspects of study design, methodology and management. Surrey CTU is currently working towards full registration for 2018 as part of the UK Clinical Research Collaboration CTU Network.
