Clinical research allows patients to access innovative treatments in the safest possible conditions. At the Eugène Marquis Centre, clinical research is carried out by a separate department that brings together doctors, pharmacists, scientists, nurses and clinical research assistants.
Clinical research is carried out by a separate department, comprising a research unit and a promotion unit.It employs doctors, pharmacists, scientists, nurses and clinical research assistants, each with their own specialist areas.
The research unit selects and carries out all open clinical trials at the Eugène Marquis Centre. It is led by the Therapeutic and Diagnostic Trials Committee (COMEDET) [Comité des Essais Diagnostiques et Thérapeutiques].
The Scientific Steering Committee (CoPilS) [Comité de Pilotage Scientifique] and the promotion unit manage the design and implementation of clinical trials run by doctors at the Centre that are open to patients at the Centre and at other establishments across France.
In 2015, the Eugène Marquis Centre became the Early Phase National Cancer Institute Certified Centre (CLIP2) [Centre Labellisé par l’INCa (Institut National du Cancer) de Phases Précoces] for the region of Brittany, in partnership with Rennes University Teaching Hospital. The aim of the CLIP2 programme is to grant patients across Brittany access to innovative clinical trials.
The Eugène Marquis Centre is working towards obtaining ISO 9001 certification for its clinical research, which is expected to be achieved by the end of 2017. This demanding international standard is a guarantee of quality and safety for our patients, our staff and our partners. It applies to the design and implementation of the Centre’s own research projects and of all clinical trials available at the Centre.
