Abstract: Uppsala Clinical Research center is the leading clinical Academic Research Organization (ARO) in Sweden, providing in-house expertise. Our services include management of clinical studies, biostatistics, clinical quality registries, and clinical event adjudication.
UCR started in 2001 as a clinical research center within Uppsala University and Uppsala University Hospital, with an aim to support qualified clinical research to improve health and healthcare practice.
The UCR experienced teams are knowledgeable in conducting both observational studies, in collaboration with regional, academic, or independent researchers, as well as large, global, complex, randomized clinical trials together with global medical corporations, in pharmaceuticals and medical devices.
The presentation will describe the basics for performing a clinical study, with a specific focus on medical devices.
Maria Sörby is a biochemist and has a PhD in Molecular Cell Biology from the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research at Uppsala University. She has experience as head of large-scale laboratories and Quality manager. Maria was the Site Director at SciLifeLab at Uppsala University, during the build-up years 2010-2016. Recently, Maria has been Project Manager for a national project developing and implementing a clinical decision support system in cancer care. Starting in 2023, Maria is Director Clinical Research at UCR.
Elisabeth Palmcrantz-Graf has a MSc in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from Uppsala University. She has been working in the field of clinical research since 1995 and has experience from pharmaceutical and medical device industry, as well as from academic clinical research. Since 2006 she has been working as Project Manager at UCR.
