Yes - The University of Liverpool is a partner in the UNITE4TB consortium a public-private partnership supporting an international clinical trials platform in tuberculosis funded by EU-IMI that includes four pharmaceutical partners (GSK, Janssen, Otsuka and Evotech). However, all industrial contributions to the consortium are in-kind and neither I, my research group institution receive any funding from industry through this consortium. The University of Liverpool is also a partner without budget in the PanACEA consortium, a clinical trials platform supported by the EU European and Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership. Though this consortium has involved interactions with commercial partners (Qurient, Sequella) neither I, my research group, institution nor the clinical trial site that I support in Blantyre, Malawi, receive any funding from industry through this consortium. I have provided pro bono advice to advisory boards convened by GSK and Janssen for which I have received no payment or benefit, direct or otherwise (honorarium, expenses, hospitality).
