COCR Collaborators  

We are welcoming cooperation with UK and international research partners.  As an example of our current records activities we are developing, setting up and delivering investigator initiated studies funded by prestigious organisations. COCR is also hosting clinical trials with industrial partners who are also interested in investigating the efficacy and safety of their products. We are able to host long term commercial trials including randomised and open extension clinical trials.  We can also facilitate industry or investigator led short term trials lasting 1-3 months. The latter includes intervention or screening studies for relevant disease biomarkers or oral microbial profile; as well as different products for improving oral health and well-being with healthy volunteers or NHS patients. 

For further expression of interest and collaboration please contact Shirley Goodey
