The CTC offices are currently closed for refurbishment. Access to trial TMFs and patient records will be limited during this period. We will still be able to receive post during this time, but there may be a small delay in responding to this. Our fax lines may also be subject to disruption. Where possible, please direct all correspondence via email to trial-specific email addresses. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Due to COVID-19 and current government guidance, UCL CTC staff continue to work remotely with limited access to the office. Please continue to email the trial specific mailbox with any urgent queries. For paper CRF trials, please continue to copy and scan CRFs to the trial inboxes (remove all patient identifiers except Trial Number and Initials) until further notice.

Data and sample sharing
CR UK & UCL cancer trials centre (CTC) data and sample sharing arrangements with non-commercial research groups

The CTC is committed to supporting safe and appropriate sharing of data and samples (if available) from its non-commercially sponsored trials.

Making a request for access to data or samples from a CTC trial or trials:
Contact should be made via the relevant Trials Group Lead, Director or Deputy Director.

How a request for data and/or samples will be handled by the CTC:
On receipt of a request the recipient will consider the proposal, ensure relevant Chief Investigator/Trial Management Group are consulted and, if necessary, Trial Steering Committee and/or CTC Senior Management Group.

The following will be reviewed when considering applications for data sharing and sample access:

  • Data and sample use is in-keeping with patient consent
  • The proposed project has scientific value, with defined objectives and study plan
  • Our trials data are appropriate for the intended purpose
  • Proper acknowledgement of the CTC and/or trial investigator(s) in all publications that arise from the data sharing (preferably as co-author)
  • Compliance with legal and regulatory requirements is maintained
  • Confidentiality can be maintained at all times
