Our university in the Clinical Research Support Centers network

The Medical Studies Agency has decided that Wroclaw Medical University will become one of 10 centers which received funding as part of a competition supporting the creation and development of Clinical Research Support Centers.

It is extremely important and excellent news for our university. The development of the Clinical Research Support Center will allow to integrate our teams working at the hospital and university, which will bring new quality – says the Wroclaw Medical University Rector prof. Piotr Ponikowski.

- The funding will be dedicated towards building a team, provide new equipment and purchasing software supporting the handling of clinical trials at the university and hospital – Marta Duda-Sikuła from the Project Management Center explains.

- We are creating a modern unit, which will take advantage of diffused potential - from now on the work of the teams will be systematic and coordinated. We will use the opportunities provided by the Pharmacy Faculty cooperating with the Early Phase Center ran by prof. Anna Wiela-Hojeńska and the Biobank managed by Agnieszka Matera-Witkiewicz, PhD. We will also include scientists working in the field of clinical studies at our university in different units of the university and hospital. Ultimately, a center will be established that will conduct both non-commercial and commercial research.
