About ISCR Investigator Council
An Investigator is responsible for the conduct of the clinical trial at a trial site. The trial site is the location(s) where most of trial-related activities are actually conducted. Therefore, the investigator and his/her team are an important stakeholder in a clinical trial. An investigator is expected to comply with all the responsibilities as laid out in the ICH GCP guidelines and the applicable regulations. Key opinion leaders / highly experienced clinical trial investigators represent the investigator community, on the Investigator Council of ISCR.
The main aims of the Investigator Council are to:
- Generating awareness of clinical research among the investigator community and Capacity Building for Potential investigators in India.
- Propagate adoption of the highest standards of clinical research at investigator sites by providing required guidance and training to investigators across the country.
- Communicate issues, concerns and expectations from research sites to ISCR and further to regulators and policy makers through appropriate channels.
- Create a platform to discuss issues and exchange best practices.
