Curious CTRU

Hannah Buckley and Amber Reid with YCR stand

The University of Leeds held the ‘Be Curious 2017’ event on 25th March which was about research in Leeds and how this contributes to the local community.

Hannah Buckley and Amber Reid hosted a stall to explain some of the some of the research done at CTRU, predominately focused on the Yorkshire Cancer Research (YCR) collaboration. It was a great way to showcase the success of the YCR collaboration in the delivery of early phase clinical trials to date; 5 trials are in set-up, 4 trials are currently recruiting and 1 trial is in follow up. Of 75 patients recruited nationwide into these YCR studies, 38 patients have been recruited in Yorkshire.
