SRA Webinar: Spotlight on Clinical Trial Sponsorship-Feb. 28
First Published 2/23/2018

SRA Webinar:   Spotlight on Clinical Trial Sponsorship

Date:                 Wednesday, February 28, 2018

Time:                 1:00 pm to 2:00pm

Location:            Research Building 6 2.312

Presenters:        Doug Mounce, Grants and Contracts Manager, Cancer Research And Biostatistics (View bio)

RSVP:               https://my.utmb.edu/PStraining/

Sponsoring a clinical trial is not something you do every day. This webinar will present the roles and responsibilities for sponsors and investigators by focusing on the unique role of a sponsor-investigator. Sponsor-investigators incur additional liabilities in clinical trials because they both initiate and conduct the trial. Your institution assumes all the sponsor roles and responsibilities for these types of trials. We’ll review the FDA regulations that are important for your compliance when you both initiate and conduct a trial, and we’ll present the legal principles that have been applied when a claim of injury has been decided based on the courts’ interpretation of the rules governing sponsorship. We will also look at court cases where the role of a sponsor played a significant part in the court’s decision about a particular injury claim. This will give a general structure to our understanding of liability and you will learn how principles like, `duty of care,’ `vicarious liability,’ and `fiduciary duty’ can help you, as a research administrator, measure risk in clinical trial sponsorship.

Learning Objectives:

  •          Recognize the difference between a sponsor and an investigator.
     
  •          Understand the FDA code of federal regulations that apply to sponsors and investigators, and what liability arises for an institution when the sponsor-investigator is responsible for both.
     
  •          Apply the principles of law that have been used to interpret FDA rule in claims of injury by a subject on a sponsored clinical trial.
