CTU support funding
The NIHR recognises the important and crucial role played by Clinical Trials Units (CTUs) in helping the design, development and delivery of quality research projects.
CTU Support Funding provides units with flexibility to increase their capacity to support NIHR funded projects and research funding applications. The expected result of this funding is an increase in the number of high-quality research applications submitted to NIHR programmes and supported projects.
Applying for funding
All UKCRC registered Clinical Trials Units in England are potentially eligible to apply for support funding. Applications are invited periodically and information will be published here when a call is open.

NIHR supported Clinical Trials Units
We regard Clinical Trials Units (CTUs) as an important component of any research application and funded project. CTUs can provide expertise and advice, and participate throughout the research process, from initial idea development through to project delivery and reporting.
Researchers are strongly encouraged to contact a CTU early in the process of developing research ideas and preparing funding applications.
The units listed below receive NIHR CTU Support Funding to enable them to support NIHR research applications and projects, and so are especially interested in collaborating on NIHR research.
