START aims

The latest evidence shows that 45% of all publicly-funded clinical trials fail to recruit their target number of participants.

Our aim is to improve the evidence-base concerning recruitment to trials, enhance recruitment rates and make research more accessible to the public.

Within these web pages, you will find:

  • The latest thinking around evidence-based recruitment into clinical trials, including available resources
  • Information on the development of interventions to enhance recruitment into clinical trials
  • Information on how trialists can collaborate with us to test recruitment interventions as part of their ongoing trials
  • Meet the team
