University Medical Center Freiburg

The TREAT-NMD Clinical Trials Coordination Centre (CTCC) has been set up to work with pharmaceutical companies to facilitate every aspect of the trials process in Europe.

We have already successfully implemented the Care and Trials Site Registry and the Regulatory Affairs Database and have conducted pre-feasiblity studies that have given us valuable information about suitable centres and the patient cohorts available. All this vital groundwork means we can dramatically speed up the trial preparation process for companies wishing to conduct trials in this area.

The CTCC is associated with the Neuropediatric Department of the University Children's Hospital of Freiburg and the Clinical Trial Centre of the University of Freiburg. The Clinical Trial Centre can provide full CRO services and already has extensive experience in the planning, conduct and analysis of multinational clinical trials for the pharmaceutical and medical device industry and scientific investigator initiated trials.
