The Centre for Trials Research at Cardiff University is the largest group of academic clinical trials staff in Wales – with over 161 staff, and growing. We tackle the big diseases and health concerns of our time, including growing resistance to antibiotics, early cancer diagnosis and how to eliminate health inequalities.
We achieve this by forming strategic partnerships with researchers, both seasoned and new, and building lasting relationships with the public, whose participation is essential for the success of our studies.
Our portfolio of work includes drugs trials and complex interventions, mechanisms of disease and treatments, cohort studies and informing policy and practice.
Our mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of society through recognised excellence in clinical trials and other well-designed studies.
