The Unit has an extensive portfolio of phase I, II and III clinical trials in adults and children covering a wide range of disease sites. The Unit employs a multidisciplinary team of over 180 staff including statisticians, systematic reviewers, trial management staff, research nurses, monitors, programmers, administrators and IT staff. The CRCTU receives substantial core funding from Cancer Research UK and additional funding from other charities, government and pharmaceutical companies.
