The Theme of 9th Annual Conference of ISCR

Clinical Research in India has undergone several changes in the last three odd years. Strengthening of the regulatory-ethical-operations framework for doing clinical trials in India has led to an ongoing process of streamlining and stability. Clinical research is essential not only for developing medicines for emerging health concerns (such as antibiotic resistant pathogens, H1N1, Dengue, , etc.) but also for finding safer and better medicines for entrenched diseases such as HIV, Malaria, tuberculosis (especially drug resistant TB) Diabetes, Hypertension, Cancer, heart failure etc. India, with its large patient population, and limited resources has significant unmet health needs. We need to make newer and better treatment options available to the population and to the patient’s globally. For this, India must take proactive part in conducting clinical research (“Research for India”) and assume leadership role globally (“made for the world”). As we are operating in a new regulatory and operational environment, we have a great task ahead of us – strengthening the sites, Investigators, Ethics Committees and empowering the patient who is the center of the clinical research enterprise. All of this is in keeping with ISCR’s theme and focus since the last decade of - “Patients First”! It is also a time of renewal and refocusing for the SMO, CRO and the Research based Pharmaceutical Industry for learning, partnering and collaborating with all stakeholders in Clinical Research in India and the world to drive ethical clinical research. The topics covered in this edition of the annual conference include those of relevance and contemporariness from the perspective of clinical operations, investigator initiated research, accreditation, ethics, training, regulatory, pharmacovigilance, medical writing, data management, statistics and career development in Clinical Research.
