What is?


The Clinical Research and Clinical Trials Unit (UICEC) is one of IdISBa's research support platforms and its main function is to provide support to researchers in the development of both independent and non-promoter clinical research projects as in commercial promoter clinical trials. The unit offers both scientific and administrative support, also assisting with the regulatory and clinical management, monitoring and pharmacovigilance aspects of independent clinical trials.


The UICEC-IdISBa service portfolio makes available to researchers the performance of tasks related to the design, planning and implementation of clinical studies, as well as their coordination and development, including nursing and management tasks of biological samples. Data management and security monitoring tasks are also carried out.


Since 2021, the UICEC-IdISBa has been integrated into the Platform of Clinical Research Units and Clinical Trials SCReN (Spanish Clinical Research Network) of the Carlos III Health Institute (ISCIII).


SCReN is a cooperative network, where clinical research units (UICs) from 34 different centers from 14 autonomous communities are associated. Its general objective is to facilitate the performance of clinical research of quality and excellence, by providing adequate support to scientifically relevant proposals, facilitating their correct development, dissemination and final translation into the Health System.


The unit is a multidisciplinary group and is made up of professionals from the biomedical field (pharmacologists, epidemiologists, biologists, statisticians, research nurses, laboratory technicians and administrators) experts in the field of clinical research.
