About the Network
Clinical trials are studies conducted in
patients to evaluate the potential benefits (and risks) that new
treatments could offer. They provide the 'gold standard’ evidence
base for informing and improving future patient care.
The Hubs for Trials Methodology Research
(HTMR) were established by the MRC to create a UK-wide regionally
distributed research resource to improve the design, conduct,
analysis, interpretation, and reporting of clinical trials.
The Hubs have a variety of methodological
expertise and close links with clinical trials units and other
methodological groups in universities, industry and relevant
professional bodies and organisations. The Hubs were networked
together to enhance their individual activities, strengthen
the methodological research further, and aid dissemination and
education relating to good methods in clinical trials. To read more
