GXP2165 Management of Externally Sponsored Studies


Clinical trials and other research exploits are extremely capital-intensive making it difficult for research institutes and members of academia to run them on their own. Hence, most of the major research being done in the pharmaceutical industry is done in partnership with sponsors that can provide the needed capital. This course walks one through the various kinds of sponsorship options available. It also teaches the basics of drafting a standard proposal for grants and other research aids.


In this course, we provide a synthesis of the topic through an interactive online experience. This material was built by a team of Regulatory Affairs Experts with a Qualification from Northeastern University, Boston, piloted by a Senior Member able to articulate theory with practice.
