Barts Cardiovascular Clinical Trials Unit (CVCTU)

Welcome to the beating heart of innovation – Barts Cardiovascular Clinical Trials Unit (CVCTU). Funded by Barts Charity, our Clinical Trials Unit stands as a beacon of excellence in the pursuit of therapeutic breakthroughs for patients grappling with heart disease as a distinguished branch of the Barts UKCRC registered unit. CVCTU is committed to advancing the landscape of cardiovascular research.

Our mission is clear: to champion cardiovascular research by exceptional design, execution, and dissemination of clinical trials that ultimately elevate patient care. Our current portfolio extends its services and support to clinical trials within Barts Heart Centre, Barts Health NHS Trust, and Queen Mary University of London.

At the CVCTU, expertise meets collaboration. While we provide trial support and oversight to local investigators within our affiliated organizations, we extend a warm welcome to investigators beyond our boundaries. Our dedicated core team manages the day-to-day operations of clinical trials, with the CVCTU trial portfolio guided by the expert hands of the Scientific and Resource Committees. A vigilant Steering Committee oversees resources, development, and strategic direction, ensuring a cohesive and impactful journey toward advancing cardiovascular medicine. Collaborate with us as we pave the way for a healthier tomorrow.
