Clinical research is about patients, including studies in the areas of therapies, technologies, epidemiology, behaviour and health services to name a few.
The Clinical Research Unit (CRU) is a team of highly experienced research professionals whose goal is to support and enable high quality clinical research at CHEO. The CRU also works with research networks and other research institutes across the country to ensure that we provide integrated, efficient and quality clinical research services.
We offer a broad range of services to help CHEO investigators accomplish their clinical research goals. We provide support for study design and methodology, statistical analysis, sample size calculation, data management, budget preparation, study logistics and more. Our team provides these services to both new and experienced researchers.
The CRU also provides regular educational and professional development opportunities for those who wish to hear about recent research results, network with other researchers or learn more about specific clinical research topics.
