BHF CRC Consultancy Support with CTUs

The BHF CRC offer UK researchers the opportunity to consult with a leading CTU to address questions in, and refine the design of, research projects. Eligible projects must be towards the later stages of development (rather than conceptual) and be of sufficient scale or merit that they will attract the support of one of our established Research Groups. Smaller scale studies or those in early-stage development are not applicable for this initiative and should be directed towards the NIHR Research Design Service. Researchers can choose the CTU they would like to work with from the list of the BHF CRC’s partnered CTUs found here.

We hope that this initiative will allow researchers to:

  • Establish a relationship with a premier CTU, best suited to their proposed study
  • Promote CTU involvement at the appropriate stage in study design
  • Provide answers to key questions in methodology, statistics or practical design to further study development.
