Shinshu University Hospital, Center for Clinical Research conducts and supports industry- and investigator-sponsored clinical trials safely, efficiently, and fairly in compliance with good clinical practices (GCP).
The center has a good clinical trial completion rate. Experienced in-house clinical research coordinators, who are qualified nurses, medical laboratory scientists, or pharmacists, support trial patients and investigators.
We have experience with multinational clinical trials, and can use protocols, case report forms and EDC systems (such as Rave and OC-RDC) in English. The center organizes lectures and open seminars to provide education for patients and investigators. The center also serves as the Institutional Review Board (IRB) Office.
Our hospital works for promotion of clinical research in cooperation with other national university hospitals as a member of the UHCT (University Hospital Clinical Trial) alliance, which was established to improve the clinical trial environment, especially for multinational trials and to conduct global studies in Japan. In addition, our hospital has joined the National Clinical Trial Network of Japanese Medical Association and implements multicenter clinical trials with hospitals all over Japan.
