Clinical Trials

Birmingham Clinical Trials Unit (BCTU)

We develop new tools for diagnosing and treating cancer. The CRUK Clinical Trials Unit works together with clinicians to take advances in medicine and surgery forward to the clinic. We translate cutting edge science into improved patient care through the design of large multi-centre/international randomised trials as well as more data intensive Phase I trials of novel therapies.
