  • Oversight and escalation of safety reporting for the trial
  • Maintenance of study documentation and filing
  • A central point of contact for queries and general facilitation of the trial
  • Support for the reporting requirements of the trial, i.e. preparation of Annual Progress Reports to REC and HRA
