The Clinical Research Centre of the University of Tartu (UT) and Tartu University Hospital (TUH):
The Clinical Research Centre of UT and TUH
International landscape of clinical research is constantly evolving: data on the etiology and pathogenesis of diseases are being supplemented, new bioresources and biobanks are added, data received from various national and international databases create new opportunities for conducting research-based trials and analysing already collected data. The international pharmaceutical industry is moving rapidly in the direction of efficient and revenue-based models for conducting clinical research. A new trend is developing strongly: research projects initiated by the researcher and planned in cooperation with the pharmaceutical industry.
To further expand national and international competitiveness and cooperation, it is the key element to have a strong support system for the doctors, researchers, doctoral students, residents and research teams engaged in trials.
