Department of Clinical Research Governance

The Department of Clinical Research Governance was set up in January 2015 with the aim to respond to the various issues surrounding clinical research, and to construct a framework within the University of Tokyo Hospital to promote reliable clinical research.

Overview

The “Department of Clinical Research Governance” was set up independently from the Clinical Research Support Center in order to allow for appropriate and agile responses to the various issues surrounding clinical research, prevent research ethics issues and research misconduct, and promote reliable clinical research. By doing so, the University of Tokyo Hospital aims to construct a framework to take initiative in managing and promoting clinical research.

Organization

The Department of Clinical Research Governance is composed of three offices; 1) Office of TR Strategy Promotion; 2) Office for Clinical Research Education; and 3) Office of Clinical Quality Assurance & Compliance. These offices mutually cooperate to promote and strengthen the governance function within the hospital.

Activities

The Central Office for Development of Advanced Medicine
It systematically promotes clinical research by assuming responsibility for general strategy formulation for the development of advanced medicine, inspecting research activities, handling applications for major researches, and promoting cooperation with related parties.

■Office for Clinical Research Education
In cooperation with the Research Ethics Office of the Faculty of Medicine, it manages education and offers information about matters related to the reliability of clinical research such as research ethics and code of conduct.

■Office of Clinical Quality Assurance & Compliance
It carries out quality assurance operations related to investigator initiated clinical trials and independent clinical studies. It performs audits and suggests improvements, provides advices and educates about constructing a framework to ensure reliability.
