How we will support you:


  • Sandpit events to develop study ideas
  • Research co-production workshops (question development, networking) 
  • Orthopaedic Trials Research Day, preceding BOA annual congress
  • Registration of appropriate T&O trials with the NIHR Associate PI scheme
  • Patient and public involvement and engagement in T&O research


  • New in-person and virtual training events for T&O Associate PIs/PIs/new CIs

If you already have some experience in T&O clinical trials, for example as a co- or chief investigator, and are looking to collaborate with an experienced CTU to plan a future study, we would love to hear from you.  Please see Working with NCTU.
