Respiratory Medicine

The UKCRN Oxford Respiratory Trials Unit (ORTU) is a specialist centre for the administration and recruitment of patients to respiratory trials based at the Churchill Hospital in Oxford. The ORTU is one of few UKCRN (UK Clinical Research Network) registered Clinical Trials Units specialising in respiratory research. We run many of our projects in partnership with the MRC Clinical Trials Unit (MRC CTU) and as part of the Comprehensive Local Research Network (CLRN) portfolio. We run both national and international trials related to our own work, as well as supporting trials led by other teams.
