ESF Syllabus for Clinical Investigator Training

30.07.2003


ESF wishes to introduce this Syllabus to help create a culture of scientifically knowledgeable physicians: physicians who, in view of the EU Clinical Trial Directive, would be able to critically evaluate study proposals, to conduct studies according to Good Clinical Practice (GCP), and to conclude and report valid data as rapid and safe as possible. The way to achieve this is through education and training, and ESF is now setting the scientific aim for this.



With the new countries entering the EU, the mission of establishing a standard for training and education is getting even more important. In view of the many courses now emerging as a response to the Clinical Trial Directive, some good and relevant, other courses more light-weighted, there is really a need for the ESF Syllabus, the new standard in Clinical Investigator Training.

The ESF Syllabus for Clinical Investigator Training is an attempt to form a common ground of values and knowledge for the physician’’s basic need when entering the field of clinical studies. Also to the more experienced researcher albeit less familiar to GCP, this Syllabus introduces a better understanding what the EU Directive will demand from him and eventually from all types of intervention studies in the future.


The Syllabus will be of great use for the researcher, but also for sponsors in achieving a well- trained study team. For researchers who become their own sponsors the Syllabus will cover their need and create understanding to the process. For regulators and Ethical Committee members it will act as a natural starting ground in evaluating study proposals. For universities and scientific councils it will provide the net values to be included in any course, and the minimum qualification level for any holder of a clinical research grant.

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
