A total of nine work packages (WP) have been defined, creating a stratified and cross-linking organisation. By integrating the clinical and translational experimental work streams, we intend to achieve within the lifetime of our project not only high quality data from randomised multi-centre clinical trials, but also advance new technologies from experimental studies through to early phase clinical studies.
The Consortium is undertaking three randomised controlled trials carried out across six European countries with a multitude of involved transplant centres. Samples collected during these trials are gathered in a consolidated bio-bank located in Oxford. Additionally, COPE is running two experimental packages as well as general project management including trial design and dissemination.
