The CTRU has an active portfolio and strong track record of methodological research being. We are an international leader in psychosocial oncology and have a developing portfolio of statistical methodology research and research into patient reported outcomes. The research strategy underpins the clinical trials research portfolio and has been built upon the Department of Health core funding and strengthened through the University of Leeds and Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust core funding.
Development of outcome measures underpins our clinical trials research in pressure ulcer prevention and obesity, forming part of a strategic approach to the development of the obesity and skin portfolios.
Importantly the methodological division provides PhD and post-doctoral opportunities and national and international collaboration. A number of outputs from our methodological research are available as downloads.
