Lancashire Clinical Trials Unit
The Lancashire Clinical Trials Unit (CTU) has been set up to manage health related trials for UCLan and external organisations.
The Lancashire CTU team has accrued many years of experience in the skills required to develop, manage and analyse clinical trials with a growing specialisation in trials of complex interventions, in particular feasibility trials.
The formulation of the Lancashire CTU structure was initiated in 2012 and we are currently supporting national and international trials.
The Lancashire CTU offers a quality assured service for the coordination and delivery of key services pertaining to robust clinical trials of complex interventions and other well-designed studies.
We offer support in:

- Trial and site set-up and on-going management, including oversight monitoring
- Data management (including form (CRF) design, data entry and data cleaning)
- Statistical analysis and reporting
These services are underpinned by our robust quality assurance processes.
We specialise in complex intervention trials in the topic areas of:
- Musculoskeletal health
