In Center for Clinical Trials, Series of human study are launched by our devoted scientists to find out new technologies or new therapies for further translational medicine. This center is designed to provide a private and safe space for trial subjects and a functional ward for research educations. Subjects' right and confidentiality are strictly ensured by our IRB, which certified by The Forum for Ethical Review Committees in the Asian and Western Pacific Region (FERCAP).
In addition to research training, ICRT also fit for clinical training needs. The OSCE Center provides a rehearsal platform for interns and nurses to practice clinical proficiency including catheter and peripheral venous catheter placement training, arterial blood sampling, basic skills in endoscopy and minimally invasive surgery simulation training. Committed to facilitating interdisciplinary and equipped with scientists and specialized personnel, ICRT provides an excellent basic and clinical research infrastructure to perform high quality research studies as well as a variety of professional training.
