Particular areas of interest or experience in cardiovascular trial design and delivery

Several members of ICTU staff have played major roles in various aspects of the delivery of several late-phase cardiovascular outcomes trials, including ASCOT, ADVANCE, UMPIRE, CREOLE, LEADER, EXSCEL, CLEAR Harmony, ORION 9,10,11, BETonMACE, STRENGTH, SCORED.

Particular expertise lies in translating critical research questions into an optimal design and in the logistical aspects of conducting large randomised trials involving multi-centre and multi-national collaborations. We have extensive experience of serving on DSMBs, end-point committees and steering committees and as global leads which have led to the approvals of novel therapies globally. Leading and conducting large scale registries have helped inform gaps in implementation prioritising and informing future guidelines.
