New Trial Concepts

If you have an idea for a clinical research project which you think Cancer Trials New Zealand could help with, in the first instance please contact Michael Findlay (Director) or Sarah Benge (Research Operations Manager) at cancertrialsnz@auckland.ac.nz.

Following this initial contact we will ask you to complete (as fully as possible) our Application for Clinical Project Support.  This form is available from the link below if you wish to start completing it sooner.  It has been designed to help guide you through the thought processes of what you are thinking/planning.
