Clinical Trials

West Virginia University's Clinical Trials Research Unit (CTRU) is dedicated to providing the services and expertise that investigators need to conduct clinical trials and expand the growing body of biomedical knowledge. We offer a wide range of administrative and budgetary services to both clinical investigators and private industry. Because West Virginia University is the state's primary research institution, the CTRU physicians represent a comprehensive range of specializations. Our staff has a sterling reputation for excellent patient care as well as timely delivery of valid and reliable data. Unlike many other academic health centers, West Virginia University provides primary care services to a large, stable population of rural patients. WVU also provides secondary and tertiary care. Our patient population ensures a high degree of follow-up care and study completion that many other clinical trials facilities cannot offer. Clinical trials are conducted at the West Virginia University Cancer Institute and the Robert C. Byrd Health Sciences Center (HSC) at West Virginia University in Morgantown.
