NCTU has a broad portfolio of clinical and methodological research studies. Whilst we do not specialise in a specific clinical area, there are some areas we have particular strengths in. For example: skin, maternal and newborn health, women’s health, respiratory disease and rehabilitation and ageing.
Our main area of research is the design and conduct of randomised clinical trials. However, we have also conducted mixed-methods studies, particularly when undertaking feasibility studies. We have a growing portfolio of trials methodology research, which focuses on improving the way in which we design and conduct randomised trials. Our team of health economists also conduct within-trial economic evaluations in trials managed by other research groups in the UK.
