Christchurch Clinical Studies Trust has had a really busy year.  In the last year CCST has recruited volunteers into 10 different studies. These studies have investigated a wide range of medical issues of interest to researchers all over the world.  Over 500 people have participated in our studies and reimbursement for taking part has ranged from $750 for a one day smoking study to $4250 for a longer study.  We are grateful to all our volunteers and their safety is the cornerstone of our work.  Keep an eye on our website for information on  upcoming studies and how to get involved with medical research in NZ.
