Thank you to everyone who entered the quiz which Keele Clinical Trials Unit ran for International Clinical Trials Week 18th - 22nd May. For all those who entered the correct answer was James Lind. All correct entrants were put in a hat and the successful winner was selected completely at random which was independently adjudicated. The lucky winner is Nicola Cornwall who will receive her prize in the coming days. Once again thank you to everyone who took part in the quiz and hope you all enjoyed the week's activities along with submitting your answers using an electronic data capture method currently being used within the CTU.

Due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus), as of Monday 23rd March 2020, recruitment of patients to all of our active research studies has ceased. This is to allow our clinical colleagues to focus their care where it is most needed. Keele Clinical Trials Unit will be operating remotely. We are currently reviewing the trials we have open and are in contact with sponsors. The safety of our patients is always our priority. We apologise for any inconvenience caused at this challenging time. You can continue to contact us using individual staff email addresses or by using your usual study contact email address to contact study teams. Should you have any other queries or questions please use the general Keele CTU enquiry email -
