This functional team is experienced in the administrative and regulatory aspects of clinical research and drug development with an extensive network of contacts throughout the pharmaceutical industry in South Africa, the African region and internationally.

They have established cordial and productive relationships with regulatory agencies and other overseeing authorities and maintained active links with researchers in industry, government institutions and the academic community.

Services offered by the Department

Using either ACRO's or the client's Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), the Clinical Trial Management & Monitoring Department assigns a dedicated team to each project and works according to a client-approved project plan. The structure of the team is flexible so it can be customised to accommodate each client's preferences and meet each project's requirements. The clinical trial management & monitoring team has multinational study experience across a broad range of clinical areas.

ACRO provides a range of clinical trial management & monitoring and auditing services to help clients develop interventions and negotiate the path through the clinic and to the market.
