The European Joint Programme on Rare Diseases (EJP-RD) project has just launched an online Support Office.
One of the types of assistance offered is 'Clinical Study support'. This support is intended for clinical investigators for the preparation of clinical studies for the development of new treatments, drug or device repurposing, or diagnostic studies. Requests for this type of support are managed by ECRIN.
Clinical Study Support: How it Works
Investigators can fill out an online form requesting input on anything from design aspects of a trial, to statistical methodology adapted to small sample size, and more. Form requests are then processed by a dedicated RD clinical manager (from ECRIN), acting as the permanent contact point for the Support Office. The RD clinical manager will be supported by ECRIN’s Clinical Operations Manager and medical expert(s) as needed.
EJP-RD has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement number 825575.
