Amsterdam 5th August 2009, Laureate Online Education B.V today announces a strategic partnership with the Ukraine Clinical Research Society to develop and promote Clinical Research trials.
Laureate Online Education B.V & the Ukraine Clinical Research Society have today announced a strategic partnership to develop Clinical Research awareness for Contract Research Organizations (CRO’s) & Pharmaceutical Companies to invest in the Ukrainian market.
The Clinical Research Society has long provided information and services to the Pharmaceutical world. The massive expansion of the clinical trials industry has been driven by the rapid growth of the pharmaceutical sector, which is expected to more than double in value by 2010. However, increasing regulations and the consequent need for more qualified personnel has led to a shortage of staff with the skills needed to manage clinical drug trials.
Now in conjunction with Laureate Online Education the Clinical Research Society will also provide their members with an opportunity to study with the University of Liverpool’s prestigious Faculty of Medicine, and it’s highly regarded clinical research unit.
“The MSc in Clinical Research Administration aims to meet the needs of professionals with a background in health who wish to broaden or begin a career in clinical research administration” states Leon James Vice President of Marketing Laureate Online Education.
“The MSc modules cover the ethical, legal and regulatory considerations that affect clinical trials, the essentials of Good Clinical Practice. We believe that the high quality of the programmes provided by the Faculty of Medicine and in particular it’s Clinical Research Unit, recognized for having Four Nobel laureates among its former members will also add further credibility to the offering of the Clinical Research Society” he continues.
“The Clinical Research Society of Ukraine is now in a prime position to offer the very highest levels of Clinical Practice with staff certified by one of Europe’s leading research institutes”.
