ICCI Webinar: Introduction to Clinical Trials with Dr. Martin Votava

The ICCI - International Cannabis and Cannabinoids Institute is proud to present its fourth online webinar with Martin Votava, MD, PhD, Prof. Assoc, on the 11th of February 2020. The title of the webinar is: Introduction to Clinical Trials.

This webinar will provide an introduction to clinical trials, including an overview of the types, requirements and basic principles which are important for conducting a successful clinical trial. Effective selection and management of a Contract Research Organization (CRO) will also be addressed.

In order to apply for a marketing authorization, all medicinal products must have supporting data from clinical trials. Regulators have outlined the basic principles of how to conduct clinical trials, and a number of guidance documents are available to provide industry with information on the basic requirements. Planning a clinical trial is a complex process, with many details that need to be taken into account (e.g. design, outcomes, endpoints, study populations, number of subjects, randomization etc.). This webinar will focus on describing types of clinical trials, their attributes, and the common principles which are used for successful planning and execution. Also, information on selecting and managing a CRO will be presented.


After this webinar, participants will:

1) Understand different types of clinical trials

2) Understand how to plan a clinical trial (e.g. design, target population, objectives, endpoints etc.)

3) Understand how to select the most suitable Contract Research Organization (CRO) for their needs

The webinar takes place on the 11th of February 2020 at:
