What is the role of a CTU and why create a CTU dedicated to clinical trials on diabetes within PreciDIAB?
The CTU dedicated to diabetes at the PreciDIAB National Center is not only a place for carrying out clinical and therapeutic trials, it is above all an organization that allows the development, under the best conditions, of clinical trials in partnership with the various actors (patients, medical specialists and town doctors, academic or industrial partners).
Thus, the CTU is organized around a single point of contact whose main role is to act as a link between the various actors to organize and carry out the tests under the best conditions. Depending on the needs, it can thus be proposed to set up therapeutic trials as close as possible to the care of patients in the various medical specialty services which welcome diabetics, to carry out early phase trials in an expert professional structure. and specifically authorized or to support any research project within the framework of partnerships.
In addition to the single point of entry, the operational coordinator of the CTU Diabetes will have an excellent knowledge of all internal organizations and points of contact necessary for the implementation of research projects as well as the necessary availability with all actors, whether they are hospital doctors, patients, the various technical and administrative services and all external partners.
