Contact: Chase Lucas
Objective: To establish clinical trial units that will conduct evaluations to determine the safety, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of investigational therapeutic products for infectious diseases caused by viral, bacterial, parasitic, and fungal pathogens.
Description: This program provides the necessary capacity to evaluate in Phase I clinical trials the growing pipeline of investigational products arising from the Division's preclinical and early product development programs as well as those arising from other research partners. Candidate therapeutics include new, untested investigational products and novel immunomodulatory agents. Moreover, the program provides dedicated resources necessary to implement early clinical trials in healthy populations in an expeditious and efficient manner. In addition to providing the facilities and resources needed to conduct Phase I studies, the program supports qualified staff with clinical expertise to carry out all aspects of Phase I clinical trials, including subject recruitment; protocol development, implementation, and oversight; clinical specimen storage and tracking; and data management and analysis.
