Aims and objectives:

This training session will help you to:

1.    Understand the different categories of clinical research
2.    Identify which regulators and legislation apply to those different categories
3.    Know which laboratory standard is required for your research
4.    Know how to achieve that standard and where to find guidance

Target audience:

You will be a researcher or a member of professional services staff involved in the laboratory processing and/or analysis of human samples for CTIMPs. You would like to gain a better understanding of the GCP in the laboratory and Human Tissue standards and their practical application in the laboratory.

Please note this training course is only open to University of Birmingham Staff and Postgraduate Students.

Why this course:

This is a half day, face-to-face, interactive workshop. Attendees will participate in workshops that will consolidate their learning and allow time to discuss how they will apply what they have learnt to their practices.
