Clinical trials

We are working to enable high-quality human subject research and strengthen clinical research capacity in low- and middle-income countries.

Our well-established clinical trials unit enables the collection of essential evidence for researchers, developers, and implementers of new diagnostics. Our team designs and conducts feasibility, development, evaluation and demonstration studies. We help to build capacity and strengthen health systems in low-resource settings, supporting the development of in-country expertise so that clinical trials meet international standards. We also gather evidence for scale-up and policy refinement after products have received approval from WHO and have been adopted into global policy.

Our clinical trials unit is overseen by our Chief Medical Officer.
