Statement on use of UoB as a site in regulated clinical trials

As per the Clinical Research Quality Manual (Word - 559 KB), the UoB would not normally act as a ‘site’ for regulated clinical trials or surgery trials (i.e. Clinical Trials of Investigational Medicinal Products (CTIMPs) or of medical devices).
