It specialises in running early and late phase clinical trials in adults and children. Alongside trials portfolios in a broad range of adult solid cancers, CRCTU is the national lead for prestigious programmes of research for children’s cancer and leukaemia trials and the Trials Acceleration Programme for adult haemato-oncology and also incorporates a dedicated academic-led Diagnostics, Drugs, Devices and Biomarkers team (D3B) running specialist non-cancer trials.
