The Unit's multidisciplinary team, led by Professor David Torgerson, works in partnership with colleagues to undertake national, scientifically rigorous, randomised trials of the effectiveness and efficiency of existing or potential health care interventions in health care, education and crime and justice.

The aim of the York Trials Unit is to:

  • conduct rigorous trials
  • provide academic leadership for rigorous trial design
  • provide support to trials external to the Unit
  • develop new trial methodologies.

This unit receives National Institute for Health Research CTU Support Funding. This funding has been awarded to support the unit in developing and supporting NIHR trials.
