The Clinical Trials Support Unit (USAC) is created for the purpose of promoting and facilitating clinical research at the institution.

In order to carry out this objective, the USAC is made up of a team of professionals in charge of carrying out the clinical trials: study coordinators, nursing staff, data managers and administrative staff. In a coordinated way they are responsible for logistics, coordination, data management and all those activities to launch a study until its completion.

The purpose of this joint work is to launch the study as soon as possible, ensuring the quality and reliability of the data obtained in the study and comply with the agreements with the promoters.
