TUF launches Urological Trials Unit



TUF chooses the Centre for Healthcare Randomised Trials (CHaRT) in Aberdeen to be its TUF Trials Unit (TTU).

We are delighted to announce the TUF Trials Unit (TTU) in partnership with The Centre for Healthcare Randomised Trials (CHaRT) at the University of Aberdeen. The unit will be led by Professor Graeme MacLennan, a medical statistician and Professor James N’Dow, a consultant urologist.

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. This approach will enable more high-quality urology trials to take place, leading to better care, quicker recovery times and fewer long-term issues.  Successful trials are catalysts for change, provide potential for transformational discoveries and drive improvements in services.

TUF is pleased to be working closely with the British Association of Urological Surgeons and representatives of the Royal College of Surgeons on this initiative. All parties are excited about the potential impact the TTU will have on the world of UK urology!
