About the ICR-CTSU

We are an internationally recognised, methodologist led, academic clinical trials unit.

Our multi-disciplinary team’s capabilities span the whole clinical trial life cycle and are underpinned by robust trials methodology expertise.

We are a Cancer Research UK clinical trials unit, part of the NCRI Cancer CTU Group and a UK Clinical Research Collaborative registered CTU.  

We strive to develop and deliver trials that offer cancer patients the chance to access cutting-edge treatments, maximising opportunities to gain as much knowledge as possible for the benefit of people with cancer in future. We are a multidisciplinary team, working with patients and researchers across the world to develop trials which will deliver.
