The University of Kansas School of Medicine-Wichita Clinical Trials Unit (KU Wichita CTU) is dedicated to determining the safety and optimal dosing of significant new medications to relieve the burden of mental illness on patients and families. This involves testing novel mechanism of action drugs and biologics for the most serious neuropsychiatric illness.

The KU Wichita CTU resources include:

  • 14 fully furnished research and clinical offices with telecommunication capabilities
  • 2 exam rooms
  • 2 centrifuges
  • 1 refrigerator
  • Full-size -20F freezer
  • Full-size -80F freezer
  • Half-size -80F freezer

The facility also includes a reception area, a patient waiting area, one conference room and a record-storage room.

The KU Wichita CTU is also available to support clinical research for other studies on the Wichita campus not related to central nervous system drug development. This involves assistance with study startup and operationalization, including administrative oversight and training of investigators and site staff.
