Clinical Research Handbook

Clinical Research Handbook

This Handbook was originally developed by the University of Washington’s School of Medicine in order to ensure a quick and efficient start-up process for industry-sponsored clinical trials. Over time, this Handbook has evolved to present practical information not only about the start-up process of clinical trials, but also about other information relating to clinical research.
