Clinical Trial, Research and Data Management

Six Months Training
The eligibility for the program is Graduation/Post Graduation in Life Science

Program Objectives
The program would endow an introduction to the area of clinical trials, with more detailed coverage of some of the key issues to be considered in their design, analysis, documentation and interpretation.

Further the course aims to develop:
  • A theoretical and practical understanding of the issues involved in the design, conduct, analysis and interpretation of randomized controlled trials of health interventions.
  • Skills to scrutinize information, to critically analyze and carry out research, and to communicate effectively.
  • Describe the uses and applications of the main types of intervention studies: clinical trials and community trials.
  • Describe the essential features and stages in the conduct of a clinical trial, and the role of randomization, use of placebo, blinding / masking and intention-to-treat analysis.
  • Discuss the ethical issues involved in the conduct of a clinical trial.

Program Methodology
The prospective participants may join the program by submitting Application form with the necessary fees and attachments. The methodology for the program delivery would be:
  • Delivery of the lectures by the technically expertise Faculty.
  • Guest Faculty from industry and academia would deliver the lectures.
  • Along with the theoretical knowledge student would also get a chance to have a practical oriented understanding of the subject e.g. role of computers in Clinical Trials
  • E-learning platform via Moodle would also be employed for the classes.
  • Students would also be taken for Industrial and Hospitals visits to have an overview of the entire Clinical trial process.

Learning Outcome
After completion of the course the participant would be able to:
  • Have better understanding of Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and Standard Operating Procedures for Clinical Research.
  • Participate in design, conduct and management of Global Clinical Trials, conducted at multicentric sites in India and Overseas.

National Conference on Biopharmaceuticals & Healthcare

Sir M Visvesvaraya Institute of Technology
Last date to register:- 31 October 2011
Start on :- 4 November 2011

Biopharmaceuticals are defined as pharmaceuticals manufactured by biotechnology methods, with the products having biological sources, usually involving live organisms or their active components. This includes all recombinant proteins, monoclonal antibodies, vaccines, blood/plasma-derived products, non -recombinant culture-derived proteins, and cultured cells and tissues. The pharmaceutical industry has transformed itself into the biopharmaceutical industry as a result of the \"convergence\" of biotechnology and pharmaceutical technologies. The pharmaceutical industry, through adoption of new technologies and close relationships with biotech companies, has undergone a fundamental change resulting in new, revolutionary technologies. Biopharmaceuticals are no longer a subset of pharmaceuticals, with biopharmaceuticals now taking in all pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, with a health care orientation.

The health care industry is one of the world\'s largest and fastest-growing industries. Combining medical technology and the human touch, the healthcare industry diagnoses, treats, and administers care around the clock, responding to the immediate needs and requirements. The delivery of health care services is the most visible part of any health care system, both to users and the general public. Improving access, coverage and quality of health services depends on how the services are organized and managed, and on the incentives influencing providers and users. Healthcare is literally of vital importance, and requires understanding of ethical and social as well as financial issues; yet healthcare is in great need of sensible economic policies to achieve value for money.

This congregation attempts to gather the leaders and stakeholders of these progressive fields, including venture capitalists, scientists, academicians, researchers, students and most importantly, the general public. The platform aims to update, discuss, network and exchange stimulating ideas on the most recent achievements in the different topics of Biopharmaceuticals & Healthcare. Through this conference we hope to achieve closer links/collaboration between scientists and engineers. We also aim at educating the general public and taking the fruits of research from lab level and realizing their potential benefits to society.
