Good Clinical Practice (GCP) for Clinical Laboratory Staff Evaluating Clinical Trial Samples

In July 2009, the MHRA published GCP guidance for laboratories which outlines the expectation of the MHRA when assessing labs that perform work in support of clinical trials. This course summarises the key elements of this guidance through presentation and workshop discussion.
