|Abstract:||The NHMRC Clinical Trials Centre at the University of Sydney runs large multicentre investigator-initiated clinical trials, undertakes research with national and international trial groups, and contributes expertise to trials run by others. It also: • takes a lead in proposing new directions for clinical research in Australia, particularly research aligned with national policy and clinical practice • participates in translational research, from bench to bedside • conducts methodological research in relation to clinical trials • reviews and synthesises evidence from completed trials, and is at the forefront of developments in methods, such as prospective meta-analysis • supervises postgraduate students in all of these areas • offers postgraduate degrees in clinical trials research • runs short courses to train people for Australian medical research. The CTC also offers health technology and diagnostic test assessments, economic analyses, biostatistical design and analysis, and automated central randomisation services (IVR and IWR). Core funding is provided by the NHMRC, and specific projects are funded by government, public and private institutions and the pharmaceutical industry. The CTC is at two sites in Camperdown in inner Sydney — the Medical Foundation Building on Parramatta Road and on Mallett Street. This report covers the CTC’s achievements for 2012.|
