The 6th DEEP General Assembly will take place from the 18th to the 20th of May, 2015 in Tirana (Albania), with the participation of the whole DEEP Consortium as well as of external experts. The General Assembly will also host the fourth Ethics Board meeting and two open meeting sessions (Clinical Research in Albania and Networks and Projects in a Global Context) with the participation of international prominent personalities in the field of clinical research. The DEEP-2 Investigators’ Meeting, a specific CRAs’ training session and individual training sessions on GCP, e-CRF and drug management will be available during the Meeting.
DEEP is the first clinical trial in which the University Hospital Centre “Mother Teresa” of Tirana (which represents the main and most important Albanian Hospital) is officially involved, after the entry into force of the new Albanian law concerning clinical trials (which took place in July 2014), and forthcoming implementation decrees.
The inclusion of Albania in the DEEP study represents an important milestone for a country that is currently managing its first non-profit paediatric trials. This will pave the way towards a new era for clinical research in Albania to the heightening of the quality of the clinical research in Albanian public institutes.
More details on the event and the related agenda will be soon available.
