MRCT Center Endorsed as APEC Pilot Center of Excellence

The MRCT Center is pleased to announce that we have received endorsement to become a Pilot Center of Excellence (CoE) at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Regulatory Harmonization Steering Committee (RHSC) SOM1 Meeting in Nha Trang, Vietnam.

The aim of this project is ultimately to become certified as an APEC Training Center of Excellence for Multi-Regional Clinical Trials (MRCTs) and Good Clinical Practice (GCP) inspection to train regulators from APEC economies.

The objectives of our Pilot Center of Excellence are: (1) to build skilled capacity in clinical trial regulatory science to facilitate review and oversight of MRCTs and GCP inspection in APEC economies and (2) to collaborate closely with others in the MRCT/GCP priority work area to determine the optimal curricula, method(s) and configuration to deliver training in a culturally-appropriate manner.

The training for regulators will be planned for spring 2018 and will be co-hosted by the APEC Harmonization Center.
