Volunteering for Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research studies that help us to understand how to treat a particular disease or condition. Trials explore whether a treatment, medical strategy or device is safe and effective in people.

We have listed below some of the ongoing trials you can volunteer for.  Click on links for contact details. In most cases, trial organisers will reimburse your travel costs. The full list of ongoing clinical trials run by the Addenbrooke's Centre for Clinical Investigation can be found here.
