On International Clinical Trials Day this year, NIHR launched its ‘Be Part of Research’ campaign – aiming to provide a source of information for people to find out what research is currently taking place across the UK. The campaign raised awareness by featuring real life stories of patients who have been successfully involved in clinical research.

As part of the campaign, the Be Part of Research (formerly UKCTG) website was launched, and this continues to run as an excellent resource for anyone working or interested in clinical trials, providing details on what research is about and the many ways to get involved, as well as a listing of all studies currently taking place across the UK. The website has a search function to allow you to look through this listing for research on particular conditions or drugs, or find out where there may be studies running near you.

Again, this is a wonderful resource and OCTRU wholeheartedly recommend that you visit the website at and take a look around!
