Special note:
If you work in regenerative medicine and are considering translation to a clinical trial, you will need to address certain regulatory questions before applying for trial funding.  Failure to do this will lead to significant delays which could affect the success of your application.  This is particularly relevant for the translation of cell/gene therapy and novel biomaterials.  A set of Pre-Application Tools  has been produced by the Manchester Regenerative Medicine (MaRM) Network to help you with your clinical trial planning.
