Tread Research Tygerberg Valley

TREAD is a large, private site-managed organisation attached to the Cardiology Unit, Stellenbosch University and located in Tygerberg Hospital, Parow, South Africa. Although established primarily as a cardiovascular and lipidology clinical trials unit, our integrated network of multi-speciality physicians has also enabled us to participate in trials involving rheumatology, general medicine, infectious diseases, neurology and endocrinology. We have a very large database of patients and through innovative recruitment techniques, we are also able to enrol patients from numerous other sources – including academic and government hospitals, day hospitals and local physicians. TREAD was established in 1996 by Professors Lesley Burgess and Anton Doubell. The Unit is run by Prof Lesley Burgess, who has been involved in clinical trials since 1992 and has conducted over 500 studies to date. Since completing her PhD in 1999, she has been working full-time with TREAD.
