Clinical research infrastructure to run study projects smoothly
Six hospitals in Switzerland with Clinical Trial Units (CTUs) received seed funds from the Swiss National Science Foundation in 2007. Since then, the CTU Network has developed a well-established and nationally coordinated clinical research infrastructure. The Ente Ospedaliero Cantonale (EOC) became ordinary member in 2020 and is now part of this network too. CTUs provide all the services needed to run clinical study projects smoothly. As of 2017, each CTU also coordinates one of our SCTO Platforms focusing on one key area of clinical research. More than 150 people work in the CTU Network.
We coordinate the collaboration between the CTUs and support them in their activities.
Read more about the interesting research projects that the CTUs have supported in our publication for the 10th anniversary of the CTU Network.
For more information about the services offered by the CTUs, please consult our CTU Network fact sheet below.
CTU network members
The directors of the CTUs make up a permanent committee of the Board of CTU Directors. The aim of this board is to liaise with the SCTO Steering Board regarding the overall strategy of the SCTO, which includes input related to its implementation.
