Knowledge Network and Learning
The Clinical Trials Unit aims to create a
central pool of ideas and knowledge to promote interdisciplinary
collaborations, attract and retain investigators, empower research teams
and increase awareness of clinical trials and its various benefits for
the patient as well as scientific advancement.
Advocacy and Leadership
CTU strives to provide leadership in
developing and implementing policies and procedures that will shape
research practices. This will attract and promote clinical trials not
only at AKU but in the country.
Through its trial, CTU intends to streamline
trials procedures and develop a centralized repository. Researchers can
draw on resources already in place which lead to efficient monetary and
time usage. This would also help researchers to stay focused on the task
at hand rather than contracts and regulations.
Clinical Trial Management
Through its services, CTU promotes efficient
management of clinical trials with high quality and standardised
conduct, yielding better results, faster enrollment and lower trials
