Being a researcher, I consider patient safety as a prior responsibility for the conduct of clinical trials. My opinion totally aligns with that of the patient centric approach of Clinical Trials Unit at RMI. This is one of the reasons I joined RMI. Apart from this, driven by a desire to share the wealth of my expertise, I transitioned from Islamabad, a stronghold of clinical research, to Peshawar, where this discipline was just taking root. Peshawar’s Clinical Trials Unit at RMI stands as the pioneering DRAP-registered unit in the region, beckoning researchers of KPK to a world of untapped opportunities.
