Edinburgh CRF: NRS Good Clinical Practice (GCP) Update
29 Jun 2017 • Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Abstract:
This one day course is designed either for those who have not studied Good Clinical Practice (GCP) before or those who have studied it more than two years ago. It is presented very much as a practical introduction to the subject and consists of a mixture of a series of short lectures interspersed with practical activities, culminating in a monitoring workshop where delegates are asked to work in small groups and review trial paperwork in the role of the monitor. This activity allows a lot of the more abstract concepts that have been discussed throughout the day to be brought to life. While the principles of the GCP that are covered in the course are common to a wide range of different types of clinical research the course does focus on the drug trial specific legislation. However, it also tries to promote the ‘GCP-mindset’ needed to satisfy inspectors and auditors, and would therefore be useful for all clinical researchers.

Edinburgh CRF: NRS Introduction to Good Clinical Practice (GCP)
13 Sep 2017 • Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Abstract:
This one day course is designed either for those who have not studied Good Clinical Practice (GCP) before or those who have studied it more than two years ago. It is presented very much as a practical introduction to the subject and consists of a mixture of a series of short lectures interspersed with practical activities, culminating in a monitoring workshop where delegates are asked to work in small groups and review trial paperwork in the role of the monitor. This activity allows a lot of the more abstract concepts that have been discussed throughout the day to be brought to life. While the principles of the GCP that are covered in the course are common to a wide range of different types of clinical research the course does focus on the drug trial specific legislation. However, it also tries to promote the ‘GCP-mindset’ needed to satisfy inspectors and auditors, and would therefore be useful for all clinical researchers.

Edinburgh CRF: NRS Introduction to Good Clinical Practice (GCP)
24 Oct 2017 • Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Abstract:
This one day course is designed either for those who have not studied Good Clinical Practice (GCP) before or those who have studied it more than two years ago. It is presented very much as a practical introduction to the subject and consists of a mixture of a series of short lectures interspersed with practical activities, culminating in a monitoring workshop where delegates are asked to work in small groups and review trial paperwork in the role of the monitor. This activity allows a lot of the more abstract concepts that have been discussed throughout the day to be brought to life. While the principles of the GCP that are covered in the course are common to a wide range of different types of clinical research the course does focus on the drug trial specific legislation. However, it also tries to promote the ‘GCP-mindset’ needed to satisfy inspectors and auditors, and would therefore be useful for all clinical researchers.

Edinburgh CRF: Putting it Together: Project Management in Clinical Research
02 Nov 2017 • Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Abstract:
A successful research project does not solely depend on an important research question and a well designed protocol, but also on the efficient execution of the project. Many research projects fail to complete on time and on budget and some struggle even to get off the ground. In this half-day workshop we will apply the principles of project management to clinical research and show how by applying some simple tools and techniques we can solve many of the common problems we face and avoid others altogether. The workshop will consist of a series of short, interactive lectures, interspersed with practical exercises.

ESCRT — New Horizons in ESCRT Biology
17 Apr 2018 - 20 Apr 2018 • London, United Kingdom
Abstract:
The Endosomal Sorting Complex Required for Transport (ESCRT) machinery is an essential membrane-remodelling complex that is conserved throughout evolution as far back as archaea. Since their discovery in 2001 as regulators of cargo sorting to the yeast vacuole, work on the ESCRT machinery has exploded as our understanding of this machinery’s role in remodelling different membranes has grown.
