The investigators play an important role in the development of drugs, innovative therapeutics, medical devices and other products which help to improve the health of people around the world.
By conducting clinical research, clinicians gain several advantages:
- Professional Development. Remain at the cutting edge of your specialty and meet other clinical research investigators to exchange ideas and plan future collaboration.
- Professional Recognition. Clinical research investigators often progress to become key opinion leaders within the healthcare industry.
- Introduce Alternative Treatments to Your Patients. Clinicians become exposed to new medical therapies and have the advantage of offering their patients alternative treatments which may be available only through participation in a clinical trial.
It is important for every Investigator to have a thorough understanding of the institutional processes and policies, regulatory requirements and other aspects of clinical research prior to embarking on a clinical study. This is because it is the responsibility of the investigator to ensure proper conduct of research and human subject protection are undertaken during the study. All PIs are to ensure subcontractors and collaborators comply to the NUH Human Research Protection Policy.
