Eastern Clinical Research Unit (ECRU) - Endocrinology and Diabetes Clinical Trials - Services

The Eastern Clinical Research Unit (ECRU) is part of the Eastern Health Clinical School, Monash University. Doctors from the Endocrinology and Diabetes Unit at Eastern Health run the clinical trials at ECRU, together with research nurses and support staff.

ECRU is committed to being part of world-class clinical research. One of the ways to achieve this is to participate in clinical trials of new medications for treating diabetes and other disorders. Clinical trials are essential to the development of new medications. Without clinical trials, we cannot properly determine whether new medicines developed in the laboratory or by using animal models are effective or safe.

ECRU has been conducting clinical trials since 1995. Over this time, ECRU has successfully completed hundreds of trials for diabetes, weight loss, osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease, which have led to the availability of these new medications to the Australian public.

ECRU has a professional, highly organised team dedicated to the care and wellbeing of all our clinical trial participants. ECRU is a unique facility in Melbourne, highly sought out by pharmaceutical companies, which in turn means ECRU can offer potential benefits of new therapies to patients.
