- Clinical Trial Site
The Royal Melbourne Hospital holds a strong philosophy that clinical trials are not supplementary or an adjunct to patient care – they are patient care. On any given day, enrolment in a clinical trial may be the optimal treatment for our patients, and therefore it is imperative that we continue to build our research footprint.
With that in mind, The Royal Melbourne has made considerable investment in expanding our clinical trials capacity, including the opening of a dedicated multi-disciplinary Clinical Trials Centre in June 2017.
Our partnerships with sponsors, contract research organisations and collaborators are crucial to bringing clinical trials of promising new drugs and devices to the Royal Melbourne, and we remain committed to strengthening these relationships.
We have a longstanding track record in conducting clinical trials across many health disciplines, particularly in:
- Anaesthesia and pain management
- Colorectal medicine
- Immunology and allergy
- Infectious disease
- Mental health
- Palliative and Supportive Care
- Respiratory medicine
In addition, we have the capacity to undertake trials in all phases – ranging from first in human through to phase IV. The success of our clinical trials has led to improvements in health practice and policy both here at RMH and elsewhere.
