The NPEU Clinical Trials Unit (CTU) has been awarded full CTU registration by the UK Clinical Research Collaboration (UKCRC). The Review Committee noted that the application submitted for the 2017 registration call “provided clear evidence of operational experience in the design and delivery of large scale multicentre clinical trials.” The committee concluded “a strong application had been presented from a very good free standing unit which met the criteria for Full Registration”. Our congratulations go out to the entire NPEU CTU team.

NPEU Clinical Trials Unit staff will be getting out and about at Oxford University Hospitals on Friday 20th May, to mark International Clinical Trials Day, celebrated in commemoration of the day that James Lind started his famous trial on treatments for scurvy in sailors. Together with staff from the five other UKCRC registered CTUs in Oxford, and in collaboration with NIHR Clinical Research Network Thames Valley and South Midlands, we will be presenting our work on over 80 clinical trials answering important clinical questions in a wide range of specialties. If you'd like to know more about our trials investigating care for pregnant women and babies come and find us at one of the research stands at the John Radcliffe Hospital or pick up a flyer at the Churchill Hospital, the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre or the Horton Hospital in Banbury.
Join us at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in the evening to hear Professor Sallie Lamb, Co-Director of the Oxford Clinical Trials Unit, talk about Clinical Trials: One of the most important medical inventions in the last 100 years.
