At the core of PenCTU is a highly experienced trials operational team, comprising trial managers, quality assurance, trial administrators, information systems developers and data managers working alongside the formally affiliated University of Plymouth Medical Statistics group, co-located in offices at the Plymouth Science Park. The team has considerable experience in project-managing a portfolio of trials, with a focus on timely delivery and data quality. 

We help investigators refine their research questions, identify suitable funding sources, consider regulatory/ethical issues, identify required resources for trial delivery and develop high-quality funding applications. Further methodological collaboration is facilitated through our links both locally and nationally to health economists, epidemiologists and qualitative researchers who work with us to design and deliver clinical trials and other well-designed studies.
