Clinical Trial Registries

Clinical trial registries allow you to find clinical trials in Australia.

A registry is defined as an organisation or website that either:

  • lists clinical trials being conducted (or that have recently been conducted) in Australia (or internationally, including Australia)
  • provides a mechanism for patients or others to register their interest in participating in an Australian clinical trial
  • provides a link between potential participants and Australian clinical trials.

The two main registries are:
