Our Expertise & Capabilities
As a Core Research Facility of Rehman Medical Institute, our primary objective is to provide comprehensive support to staff and collaborators for conducting a wide range of investigator-initiated trials spanning diverse therapeutic areas. Additionally, we extend our trial services to commercial clients, including the biotech, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and complementary medicine industries, as well as clinical research organisations.
Each trial within our portfolio is assigned to a specific CTU-RMI study team, taking into consideration the study’s size, type, and the level of collaboration agreed upon. The study team typically comprises a Manager of the Clinical Trials Unit, a Clinical Trials Coordinator, Clinical Research Associates (including both Physicians and Non-Physicians), and dedicated nurses equipped with phlebotomist skills. All of these team members are overseen by a Head of Department, ensuring seamless coordination and efficient functioning. On the operational front, our study teams are further supported by Electronic Data Capture team for CTU, which offers central database development, data management, and essential administrative assistance.
By maintaining a well-organised and proficient setup, we are committed to conducting successful trials and contributing to the advancement of medical knowledge across various fields. Our dedication to excellence ensures that both our internal research initiatives and collaborations with external partners are conducted with utmost professionalism and adherence to ethical standards.
