  • selecting site, set up and ongoing management 
  • monitoring trials to ensure conduct according to protocol and key legislation
  • overseeing and escalating safety reporting for the trial
  • maintaining study documentation and filing
  • providing 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
  • close out of the trial, and preparation for archiving
