Edinburgh Clinical Trials

Clinical trials strategy

The Clinical trials strategy, underpinned by the University of Edinburgh’s Research Strategies, aims to prioritise the purpose and core expertise of the Edinburgh Clinical Trials Unit in our pursuit to develop, design and deliver world-class clinical trials.

Clinical Trials Pathway

In January 2020 an external panel of NHS R&D Directors and clinical academics with expertise in trials undertook a review of the clinical trials pathway within the College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine. The summary and recommendations from this review can be viewed in the document below:

 

Strategy

Following the external review, a short-life working group was formed to consider the recommendations of the review. The resulting Clinical trials strategy, underpinned by the University of Edinburgh’s Research Strategies, aims to incorporate the external review findings and prioritise the purpose and core expertise of the Edinburgh Clinical Trials Unit in our pursuit to develop, design and deliver world-class clinical trials.
