MHTP Clinical Trials
Since opening in December 2015, the Monash Health Translation Precinct (MHTP),(link is external) a collaborative initiative of Monash Health, School of Clinical Sciences at Monash Health, Monash University and Hudson Institute of Medical Research(link is external), has proudly facilitated more than 200 clinical trials within the state-of-the-art MHTP Clinical Trials Centre. In an Australian first, our unique facility supports research conducted at Monash University and the Hudson Institute of Medical Research in collaboration with Monash Health, the largest public health service in Victoria.
Our dedicated and self-contained clinical research and trials facility has revolutionised how trials are conducted within Monash Health. Our co-location with researchers, on level 3 of the purpose-built Translational Research Facility, at the precinct, enhances collaboration and links between basic and clinical research and patient care, expediting translation of vital discoveries to the bedside.
The MHTP Clinical Trials Centre, directly connected to Monash Medical Centre by a link bridge, contains 10 consulting rooms, 8 clinical beds and 21 treatment chairs dedicated to clinical trials patients and can be accessed 24/7 should a trial require. Dedicated research nurses provide timely and accurate protocol-required data in a professional, warm and inviting environment.
Multiple Monash Health departments access the Clinical Trials Centre including Haematology, Oncology, Gastroenterology, Lung and Sleep, Diabetes, Infectious Diseases, Neurology, Stroke, Nephrology, Critical Care and ENT. Our trials are helping patients with a range of diseases and conditions, including lymphoma, advanced solid tumours, hepatitis, cystic fibrosis and asthma.
As well as our dedicated Clinical Trials Centre at the MHTP, we also offer a large number of food, nutrition and sleep trials at BASE (Be Active, Sleep, Eat), at our Notting Hill campus.
For doctors, patients / participants
To be referred to a clinical trial, a patient’s GP or specialist needs to email a referral form to email@example.com with a subject line stating the trial to which referral is being made, or the condition if no specific trial is known. The Lead Investigator for the trial will then be in touch with the patient directly to assess their eligibility and make a face-to-face appointment in our dedicated Clinical Trials Clinics in the MHTP building at Monash Medical Centre, Clayton.
For sponsors, researchers / investigators
Supported by an on-site DXA machine, a dedicated trials pharmacy and pathology service, the MHTP Clinical Trials Centre offers a one-stop-shop for conducting clinical trials.
Working together with Monash Health’s Research Support Services, Monash Health, Monash University and Hudson Institute researchers and coordinators, the Centre supports trials from Phase 1 through to Phase 4.
The MHTP Clinical Trials Centre continues to increase access to a countless number of trials for the fast growing population of Melbourne’s South East, and encourages national and international research collaborations.
