About the USC
Clinical Trials Centre
USC conducted a meticulous analysis of the clinical trials industry in combination with a consultation process with key stakeholders, including local healthcare professionals, pharmaceutical executives, and other key thought leaders.
The product of this analysis supported the need for USC to establish a world class Clinical Trials Centre which would build the region’s collective clinical research capacity and deliver innovative and regionally relevant research.
In January 2015, the inaugural Director of the USC Clinical Trials Centre, Mr Lucas Litewka, commenced and began engaging with public, private and independent health care providers.
In May, the USC Health Clinics and the head office for the USC Clinical Trials Centre opened at Ochre Health in Sippy Downs, Queensland.
The USC Clinical Trials Centre Advisory Committee conducted its initial meeting at the USC Clinical Trials Centre head office on 28 May 2015.
