About us

Leeds Institute of Clinical Trials Research (LICTR) delivers innovative design, delivery and knowledge transfer in clinical trials research.  Our multidisciplinary approach, in collaboration with basic scientists, clinicians, policy makers, healthcare providers, public and patients and University colleagues, delivers internationally competitive research and teaching that makes a significant contribution to the evidence base for healthcare delivery. LICTR is led by Professor Julia Brown. Our strategy is to maximise our impact on global health, healthcare practice and research innovation through significant contribution to the available evidence base and through effective knowledge transfer.

The Institutes research is conducted through the Clinical Trials Research Unit (CTRU) where we have expertise in design and conduct of complex clinical trials incorporating novel designs to evaluate CTIMPs, complex interventions, diagnostics, medical devices and surgery. The CTRU receives infrastructure support from the following:
