Promoting safe and ethical clinical trials
The MRCT Center is a research and policy center associated with two of the world’s most respected names in healthcare and academia: Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard University. Our multidisciplinary teams collaborate to identify challenges and deliver ethical, actionable, and practical solutions for the global clinical trial enterprise, with a focus on emerging economies. Our efforts have resulted in the implementation of improved clinical research practices, greater transparency, clearer communication, increased diversity and inclusion, and improved safety for research participants. We function as an independent convening group to bring together collaborative multidisciplinary teams to identify expert stakeholders from industry, academia, advocacy groups, nonprofit organizations, and regulatory agencies to address critical issues in the conduct and oversight of clinical trials. We engage patients and participants throughout all stages of our work.
