A New Battlefield Towards Global Health in 21st Century: Clinical Research Networks

Author(s): Joaquin Casariego.

Graphical Abstract:


A global world, with global diseases requires a global clinical research approach towards the achievement of Global Health as a principal goal. This requires collaboration among stakeholders, including inter-sponsor and intercenter/ investigator co-operation at an international level. However, this international collaboration may be challenged due to significant barriers resulting from different cultures, regulatory environment and infrastructures for research among the different countries. Professional clinical research networks could represent an extraordinary opportunity to enhance this international collaboration, and are the best way to ensure that complex clinical trials are conducted in the right way, preserving the highest quality standards, improving efficiency. Real cases of professional networks as CAIBER, ECRIN and ESPLORO network could become the new network paradigm in clinical research.

Keywords: Biomedical research, clinical research networks, clinical trials, collaboration, esploro, global health.
