Opportunities for Investigators

New discoveries and advancements in patient care rely on the sharing of scientific knowledge and expertise. UCB actively collaborates with a strong global network of internationally renowned scientists, academic institutions, and other leading pharmaceutical companies to support the discovery and evaluation of new treatments.

Clinical Trial Data Sharing

Through multiple clinical trials in a variety of disease areas, UCB has generated a wealth of data in patients living with immunologic conditions. UCB is committed to sharing information about our clinical trials and making the results of these studies publically available. By making patient-level data from UCB clinical studies available to our scientific collaborators, we help support analyses that will inform and guide patient care.

Qualified researchers may request access to anonymized patient-level data and supporting documents that have been redacted to protect personally identifiable information from UCB-sponsored clinical studies via ClinicalStudyDataRequest.com (CSDR). CDSR is a consortium of clinical study Sponsors/Funders that facilitates the responsible sharing of patient-level data from a range of clinical study Sponsors/ Funders through a research-friendly platform.

In addition to the studies already listed on CDSR, UCB will consider ad hoc requests for additional Phase II - IV UCB-sponsored interventional clinical studies that started on or after January 1, 2007 to be added to CDSR.
