Description

Principles and Practice of Clinical Research is a comprehensive text which addresses the theoretical and practical issues involved in conducting clinical research.

This book is divided into three parts: ethical, regulatory, and legal issues; biostatistics and epidemiology; technology transfer, protocol development and funding. It is designed to fill a void in clinical research education and provides the necessary fundamentals for clinical investigators. It should be of particular benefit to all individuals engaged in clinical research, whether as physician or dental investigators, Ph.D. basic scientists, or members of the allied health professions, as well as both students and those actively participating in clinical research.

Reviews

"...this book clearly fulfills an important function for anyone involved in clinical research...this book will be accessible to a wide range of readers...this book is much needed and provides essentially all of the basic information required by investigators involved in clinical research, from both a practical perspective and a regulatory perspective...it is an excellent starting point for those embarking on a clinical research project, as well as a valuable reference that experienced investigators will probably want to have readily available."-THE NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE (April 2003) "...a comprehensive treatment of the subject of clinical research...current and timely...an asset to a library or personal collection...Dr. John Gallin, Editor, is also an NIH clinical researcher...he and the majority of the 42 contributors are employed by the NIH...therefore, much of the content of this book is in the public domain, an added plus for instructors and students...subject selectors would be interested in all three of the books...however, the work by Dr. Gallin is the most comprehensive of the three...although corporations and universities conduct their own clinical research, they receive funding from or partner with this government agency...this book is recommended for university and hospital libraries...it can also serve as a textbook for undergraduate and graduate health sciences and science majors...faculty members who engage in clinical research would also benefit from having this volume in their personal collection."-E STREAMS(June 2003) "This book is much needed and provides essentially all of the basic information required by investigators involved in clinical research. ...an important resource for institional libraries and IRBs." —THE NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE "...this volume provides an outstandingly comprehensive introduction to the field and can be recommended for virtually anyone
