  • Clinical Research Data Management
    Evidence-based medicine is subject to specific requirements e. g. in the area of ethics, data protection (special categories of personal data) and other regulatory requirements (e.g. the German drug and medicinal product laws or the Medical Device Regulation). Therefore, we offer dedicated counsel and data management services geared toward meeting these regulations for all members of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences.
