Clinical Trials (CT) are the prototype of the experimental model in humans. They require design, procedures and oversight, and specific surveillance. These reasons are sufficient for identifying a specific platform encompassing them.
The Clinical Trials ECAI aims to situate the IBIMA at a high level of excellence for the development and implementation of clinical trials and observational studies, providing both administrative and technical support, promoting and supporting the management and development of CT, both commercial and independent.
The Clinical Trials ECAI functions as an open unit, not only for researchers at University Hospitals that are part of IBIMA, but also for the promoters of the Pharmaceutical Industry, other healthcare facilities, scientific societies and Contract Research Organizations (CRO).
The Regional University Hospital in Malaga has had a Unidad Central de Investigación Clínica en Ensayos Clínicos (Central Clinical Research Unit in Clinical Trials – UCICEC) of the Consortium for the of Support of Biomedical Research Network (CAIBER) since its establishment in 2009, which also offers, advice and methodological and scientific support to the Virgen de la Victoria University Hospital in Malaga.
Due to this functional convergence it now functions as a study ECAI.
