The Centre for Healthcare Randomised Trials (CHaRT) is located in the Health Services Research Unit (HSRU) as a joint initiative with the University of Aberdeen’s Institute of Applied Health Sciences (IAHS).
CHaRT is a UK Clinical Research Collaboration registered clinical trials unit. CHaRT's goal is to collaborate in high quality Randomised Controlled Trials (RCTs), providing access to the core competencies of experienced trialists, trial management, data processing and management, statistics, and health economics. Through scientific and technical partnership, CHaRT will address important health questions in the increasingly challenging scientific, legal and regulatory environment in which RCTs will be conducted..
In 2021, following a competitive tendering process, CHaRT was chosen as the successful CTU to partner with The Urology foundation (TUF) establishing the TUF Trials Unit (TTU). The role of the TTU is to identify promising and important research ideas from urology units and provide a team of medical investigators to bring those ideas to fruition. CHaRT’s aims is to provide multi-disciplinary support to develop study protocols and grant applications in urology.
