We run an extensive range of in-house courses on research methods and quality assurance.

If you have completed relevant training in research governance, good clinical practice or good clinical laboratory practice, it is important to ensure that you record this.

Neither Barts Health or Queen Mary University of London will sponsor clinical trial-related research where investigators cannot supply evidence of research governance and good clinical practice training.
