The Trial and Study Management functional group is responsible for the day-to-day conduct of the clinical trials and studies conducted at the MRC CTU at UCL, covering the core functions of trial management, data management, pharmacovigilance, trial administration, quality control and quality assurance. 

The group consists of around 120 staff in various roles including trials assistants, data managers, trial managers, clinical project managers and specific quality assurance and pharmacovigilance roles. All these staff members work together and closely with other members of the study teams and across the Unit on all aspects of study conduct, across all research themes, from the strategic planning phase through to the reporting of trials. 

The Trial and Study Management group enables the development and implementation of standard processes across all studies the Unit undertakes. In this way, the group helps all studies adhere to regulations and comply with the Unit’s quality and research governance processes, and produce research of the highest quality.
