Trust Sponsored Studies

Reserach & Development_121

All research studies that take place within health and social care and/or involving NHS patients, their tissue, or information and data must have a Sponsor.

A ‘Sponsor’ is the organisation which takes ultimate responsibility for the research study; its initiation, management and financing, or arranging and sourcing the financing. The Sponsor also takes primary responsibility that the design of the research meets appropriate standards and that arrangements are in place to ensure appropriate management, conduct and reporting.

York and Scarborough Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust will typically sponsor studies where the chief investigator has a substantive or honorary contract with the institution/Trust and where there is at least one UK site. The decision as to whether the Trust will ultimately sponsor a study lies with the Trust Research & Development Group who regularly review and ultimately approve, all proposed studies. 

The Trust currently has 10 active "Trust sponsored studies" open to recruitment. Please follow the links below for a list of all our current studies and past publications.
