We are delighted to announce that Surrey Clinical Trials Unit has received full registration with UK Clinical Research Collaboration (UK CRC). Membership is confirmed through a registration process which is led by an International Review Committee of experts.
Following an internal University restructure, Surrey Clinical Research Centre will provide a home to three distinct clinical research functions:
- Surrey Clinical Trials Unit (CTU), supporting the design and delivery of multi-centre clinical trials and other studies
- Surrey Clinical Research Facility (CRF), providing a ‘patient-facing’ centre for detailed investigation of interventions on human participants. Professor Simon Skene will be Director of the combined CTU and CRF
- Surrey Sleep Research Centre (SSRC) with the technical capability to conduct sleep and circadian rhythm research; Director, Professor Derk-Jan Dijk.
