Current CTU Trials

We work with clinical academics across the Kent, Surrey and Sussex region to design, coordinate, manage and disseminate UK and Europe-wide multi-centre, interventional clinical trials.

We support multi-centre trials (Phase II – III) including those in Oncology, palliative care, vaccine development, hepatology and diabetes.
