If you think you may have symptoms of Coronavirus, follow the national guidance and self-isolate for 10 days. We have Introduced a number of measures and changes to help delay the spread of the virus and maintain essential health services for those that will continue to need them during these unprecedented times. If you, or a member of your family has tested positive for Coronavirus, please find resources to aid your/their recovery on our Coronavirus - Supporting your recovery page.
The Derby Clinical Trials Support Unit can assist you in the development of your research idea and how to translate this into a trial.
We provide a wide range of services, working collaboratively to support investigators from the development of the research idea to a published trial. We offer a bespoke service tailored to the specific needs of the project, where an investigator can choose all of the services we offer or any single/multiple of the CTU services relevant to a project.
We recommend that you contact us as early as possible. Ideally requests for collaboration should be made at least 3 months in advance of the funder’s submission deadline. This allows us to work with you in developing the funding application thereby ensuring all requirements of the trial have been considered.
Requests for collaboration post funding award will be considered, but may not be successful if key aspects have not been considered and appropriately budgeted.
To request CTU support for your trial, please download and complete a collaboration request form.
