Research and Innovation can assist with the feasibility process by helping to find centres to perform specific clinical trials for a company or sponsor. This involves establishing contact with researchers able and willing to collaborate with industry on a clinical trial in the role of investigator.
A multifaceted approach is used
to contact potential investigators and involves:
contact between industry and potential investigators
Visiting potential investigators to conduct an
introductory interview to gather specific knowledge about the suitability of
the centre for specific clinical trials
Research and Innovation can help establish contact with specific specialist research networks in the Capital Region. Joining networks such as forums for discussing clinical trials professionally can be advantageous when commencing a clinical trial and may serve as a good resource for finding researchers/centres interested in participating in your project.
