This six-part orientation is strongly recommended for all clinical research personnel who are new to research or new to UNC-Chapel Hill. We will introduce participants to the UNC offices involved in clinical trials, discuss federal and local regulations governing conduct of research, and provide an overview of best practices utilized in the implementation of clinical research.
