What is the study organisation?
The AMALFI study has been designed and is run by researchers at the University of Oxford’s Clinical Trial Service Unit and the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, which are world-leading centres for this type of work. The study is led by Professor Louise Bowman and Professor Barbara Casadei and involves local cardiology and General Practice specialists as well as partnership work with many other local doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals.
The study has been approved by an independent Research Ethics Committee, which includes medical professionals and members of the general public. The Ethics Committee has reviewed all the study documentation as well as checking that the question the study is hoping to answer is important enough to warrant the research being undertaken.
