Requirements and coverage
Clinical Trials insurance is available via the Insurance Section.
Research involving humans and or their bodily tissues require insurance which must be arranged on a case by case basis. The University's liabilities and statutory responsibilities will depend on the nature of the research and whether the research is jointly sponsored with another organisation such as the Addenbrookes Trust. The University does not carry automatic cover for such research but can usually arrange it.
Cover can be provided on a 'negligent harm' basis or on a 'negligent and non-negligent harm' basis. The cover is compliant with the requirements set out in the Local Regional Ethics Committee application process, and is available for trials where the University is acting as sponsor or joint sponsor or where the chief investigator is a member of the University.
