About Department Of
M.Sc. - Clinical Research and Experimental Medicine
Clinical research is the comprehensive study of the safety and effectiveness of the most promising advances in patient care. Clinical research is different than laboratory research. It involves people who volunteer to help us better understand medicine and health. Lab research generally does not involve people — although it helps us learn which new ideas may help people.
Every drug, device, tool, diagnostic test, technique and technology used in medicine today was once tested in volunteers who took part in clinical research studies.
Highlights of Clinical Research
1. While the Principal Investigator is primarily responsible for the overall design, conduct, and management of the clinical trial, the CRC supports, facilitates and coordinates the daily clinical trial activities and plays a critical role in the conduct of the study.
2. As a Clinical Research Associate (CRA) in clinical operations you are responsible for setting up, coordinating and supervising clinical studies. You plan, prepare and help carry out clinical trials to test new or existing investigational products. This assesses their safety and benefits of use.
3. As a clinical research associate (CRA), you'll run clinical trials to test drugs for their effectiveness, risks and benefits to ensure that they are safe for the intended use.
4. Medical writing involves writing scientific documents of different types which include regulatory and research-related documents, disease or drug- related educational and promotional literature, publication articles like journal manuscripts and abstracts, content for healthcare websites, health- related magazines or news
5. Clinical data management (CDM) is a critical process in clinical research, which leads to generation of high-quality, reliable, and statistically sound data from clinical trials. Clinical data management ensures collection, integration and availability of data at appropriate quality and cost.
