ICTU funding

Imperial Clinical Trials Unit is an Academic Research Organisation which is part of Imperial College London.

The unit receives some core funding from Imperial College London but the majority of our clinical studies are funded by external organisations such as the National Institute of Health and Research, the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre, the Medical Research Centre and important charities such as the British Heart Foundation and the Wellcome Trust. ICTU also submits grant applications for European Government agencies to fund individual studies through various funding streams such as Horizon 2020.
