Abstract: Patient recruitment for clinical trials and studies is a large-scale task. To test a given drug for example, it is desirable that as large a pool of suitable candidates is used as possible to support reliable assessment of often moderate effects of the drugs. To make such a recruitment campaign successful, it is necessary to efficiently target the petitioning of these potential subjects. Because of the necessarily large numbers involved in such campaigns, this is a problem that naturally lends itself to the paradigm of Grid technology. This paper describes a Grid infrastructure developed as part of the MRC funded VOTES project (Virtual Organisations for Trials and Epidemiological Studies) at the National e-Science Centre in Glasgow that supports these processes and the different security requirements specific to the clinical domain.
