Some studies may require Royal Papworth NHS Hospital Foundation Trust to be the Sponsor, if you would like further information regarding this please contact one of our Clinical Project Managers.

If a study has no third party sponsor, the Trust will usually act as sponsor for research where:
  • The research involves any Royal Papworth Hospital Foundation Trust resources, staff or patients
  • The Chief Investigator (CI) is a substantive employee of Royal Papworth Hospital Foundation Trust
  • The Chief Investigator (CI) holds an honorary contract with Royal Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and a substantive employment contract with the University of Cambridge.
