Clinical trials are research studies on human subjects, necessary for determining the safety and effectiveness of medical treatments, devices or approaches. Such studies must adhere to strict guidelines as provided by the regulatory bodies in various regions such as Australia (Therapeutic Goods Administration), the US (Food and Drug Administration) and Europe (European Medicines Agency).

This subject introduces the regulation and protocols for clinical trial programs required both nationally and globally. Clinical trial design and project management in the context of new product development is introduced. Students develop a solid understanding of clinical trial design ranging from protocols to recruitment, initiation of studies, data collection and management. It also encompasses the auditing requirements for the manufacture of clinical materials and clinical protocols.
