Clinical Research (CR)

Business Contents

In order to achieve high-quality clinical research, developing better research designs with the FINER (Feasibility, Interest, Novel, Ethic, and Relevance) philosophy in mind during the planning stage is essential. Our CR division supports developing research planning which fulfills the FINER objectives by providing assistance from our professional advising team, which includes clinical doctors with abundant experience in clinical research, as well as medical statisticians.
