Make contact with HHTU
Please contact us via the online collaboration request form or by emailing HHTUenquiries@hull.ac.uk. Complete as much detail as possible to enable us to include relevant staff in the informal meeting.
We will arrange an initial meeting to review the collaboration request and to discuss your requirements in greater detail. We’ll share your plans with relevant HHTU and method hub staff for initial input and feedback on design and methodology.
Decision on study adoption
Your project and submission timelines will be reviewed by the HHTU senior management team. We will make a formal decision on whether to adopt the study based on strategic fit and current capacity within HHTU. If we go ahead, we would expect CIs to agree to our terms of collaboration. We’ll then work with you to develop the study towards submission.
HHTU will work with you and the sponsor to determine the overall costs of the study. HHTU specific elements will include staff costs such as trial and data managers, data management systems, randomisation, monitoring, trial oversight and quality assurance.
Collaborative funding application
HHTU will work closely with you until the research proposal is submitted. Our expert staff, including methodologists, statisticians and data managers, will input to the design of the study and to the completion of the application form.
HHTU will assist with the response to reviewer comments, and with subsequent stages of applications. Once funding is confirmed, we will start to work with you on the implementation of your study.
