The Clinical Trials Team at Shepherd Center provides exceptional administrative and clinical support for the initiation and conduct of clinical trials.
The team supports and implements industry sponsored, government funded, privately funded, and investigator-initiated research studies. Phase I – IV clinical trials involve both inpatients and outpatients.
Most participating subjects are Shepherd Center patients (each year the Center admits hundreds of patients and conducts thousands of outpatient clinic visits). The team delivers the finest response to pharmaceutical and bio-technical firms and provides comprehensive investigator support services.
Shepherd Center's Research Review Committee reviews all requests for the use of human subjects in research at Shepherd Center. Depending on the nature of the research and the potential risk and benefit, requests for use of human subjects may be eligible for expedited review or may require full board review.
