This book is a must-read for students and professionals for a broad understanding of the entire process of clinical trial operation. In the second edition, we have added several new topics of interest. At the moment, a clinical trial is the most relevant method at our disposal to explore and establish safety/efficacy of a new medicine. It is the fundamental basis of clinical development programs of healthcare products. Clinical research has opened several new career choices. Graduates in medicine, pharmacy, and other life sciences now have the option to work as investigators, scientists, project managers, data managers, monitors, study coordinators, regulatory affairs managers, and so on. Many of these positions have specialized and focused responsibilities in the industry setting. Considering the highly complex environment of clinical research, an understanding of the big picture is indispensable for effective collaboration.
