The CPTU opened in 2006 with core funding from Cancer Research UK. It is based within the Cente for Cancer Prevention led by Professor Jack Cuzick. The group has been designing and running international and multi-centre trials for over 10 years and has considerable expertise and experience, particularly in studies involving healthy volunteers.The unit specialises in the design, conduct and analysis of cancer prevention & screening clinical trials. It offers a service to chief investigators enabling them to set-up and run large national and international multi-centre trials. All research within CPTU is undertaken on the basis that the trial ask an important health question and is both scientifically and ethically sound.
