January 2016 --- July 2016
Evaluation of the effects of Vitamin K deficiency (exposition to Warfarin) in vertebrate’s early development. Warfarin embryopathy's phenotype characterization: Histological analysis of zebrafish larvae´s tissues (bone, brain, liver).
Clinical Research Monitoring Course
February 2016 --- April 2016
Overall Objectives: Recognise the importance of clinical trials in the development of new medicines. Understand different methodological approaches to clinical research and the “life cycle” of the clinical trial. Understand the national and international legislation and other applicable standards of reference. Know the main parties involved in a clinical trial and the responsibilities of each. Understand the role of clinical trial monitors and the main factors and characteristics that have the greatest impact on their performance. Specific Objectives: Describe the different stages of a clinical trial, anticipate the main problems that can occur and propose solutions. Apply knowledge acquired about the process of submitting clinical trials to the National Ethics Committee for Clinical Research (CEIC), the National Authority of Medicines and Health Products (INFARMED), the Portuguese Data Protection Authority (CNPD) and hospital administrations. Perform the specific duties of the clinical trial monitor during the various stages of clinical trials, namely during site visits, based on a study protocol.
