Investigator-initiated clinical studies (IISs) play an important role in translating medical discoveries and hypotheses into clinical practice and bringing important value to advancement of human healthcare. To encourage and facilitate more high impact IISs, HKUMed has recently delegated the Clinical Trials Centre (CTC) and the Biostatistics and Clinical Research Methodology Unit (BCMU) to establish an “IIS Facilitation Scheme”, through which a range of supports and services will be offered to clinical investigators by stages.
The first initiative under this Scheme is a comprehensive training programme which comprises 4 courses.
Courses will be launched in the coming months. Please pay attention to announcements on HKU-CTC’s website or by HKU emails. Stay tuned!
