SynRG Becomes First Russian Member of European Forum for Good Clinical Practice

Wednesday, December 16, 2009 06:44 AM

Russia-based contract research organization (CRO) SynRG recently became the first Russian member of the European Forum for Good Clinical Practice (EFGCP), an organization created in 1993 to help develop and evaluate European health research. One of the EFGCP’s main purposes is to promote Good Clinical Practice (GCP) throughout Europe.

“We have a mutual interest in facilitating the conduct of clinical research projects in Russia to the highest standards of GCP, by providing appropriate information and training of investigators and ethics committees in these standards,” said Frank Wells, EFGCP’s Ethics Officer.

Through SynRG’s participation in the organization, EFGCP hopes to establish a dialogue with Russian non-profit and government institutions involved in clinical trials in Russia, as well as launch EFGCP training programs for Russia-based CRAs, investigators and members of the local ethics committees. SynRG hopes its participation in the organization will improve Russia’s clinical trial market and help the company attract foreign study sponsors.
