The Data Management Systems (DMS) functional group provides programming and data management support for systems used in trials, studies and cross-study work at the MRC CTU at UCL. 

We have developed and we maintain a number of innovative systems to meet the needs of our studies, including clinical data management, randomisation, trial site administration, drug supply management and image collection and retention. 

The group includes analyst programmers, business analysts and data scientists, and across the team we have built up many years of experience of systems development within the clinical trials sector. We work closely with other trial and study team members to deliver validated computer systems for case report form data entry, data management, randomisation, extracting data for analysis, reporting for managing data quality, websites and other trial-specific requirements. We also develop and support systems that support MRC CTU at UCL processes such as portfolio management and system training delivery.
