Today's clinical research is tomorrow's medicine
For researchers and study personnel
To ensure the successful development of new therapies or to improve existing treatments, collaboration and dialogue between all parties involved is needed. Professional clinical research also requires well-trained staff that is able to carry out studies properly. This ensures that Switzerland remains an attractive location to conduct clinical trials in the future. In addition, patients and their organisations need to better understand clinical research in order to have a partnering relationship with researchers.
The SCTO helps to optimise conditions for clinical research in Switzerland and to establish the necessary national and international contacts. Moreover, we strengthen young talent with training programmes that specifically addresses the needs of young researchers.
Furthermore, the SCTO provides access to research infrastructures in Europe, for example ECRIN (European Clinical Research Infrastructure Network), which offers comprehensive management and consulting services for multicentric, multinational studies.
