An Introduction to Clinical Trial Research

Published on February 20 2014


Brock University's Research Ethics Office Presents: An Introduction to Clinical Trial Research

Do you conduct clinical trial research? The most common clinical trials are biomedical and behavioural; however, Canada's Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans (TCPS2) defines a clinical trial as any form of investigation involving participants that evaluates the effects of one or more health-related interventions on a health outcome.

Join us for this introductory session on clinical trials, the regulations that govern them, and relevant ethical considerations involved for both researchers and REB members.

Presenter: Maureen Nummelin, PhD, Chief Ethics Officer, University of Waterloo

Venue: Room 207, Cairns Family Health and Bioscience Research Complex, Brock University

Date and Time: Friday, March 7, 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.

RSVP by March 5 to the Brock University Research Ethics Office:
