Bruyère Research Institute

Clinical Trials Group  

The Clinical Trials Group at the BRI (CTG-BRI) is a rapidly expanding team running clinical research studies in the areas of brain and mind health, nutrition, aging, dermatology and primary care. With facilities at the Elisabeth Bruyère Hospital, the CTG-BRI has the capacity to run both intervention studies (drug or non-drug) and observational studies. The group is staffed by an experienced Manager, Clinical Trials Research Coordinators and Research Nurses who can provide investigators with a “ready to go” team customized to help run their study from conception to completion.  Staff have extensive experience working with Clinical Trials Agreements (CTAs) and can provide both legal and liability reviews for all contracts and service agreements associated with a clinical trial, along with budget development and justification, ethics applications, and tri-council grant applications. Through their extensive experience working with the pharmaceutical industry and Health Canada, the team can provide an investigator with all the help they need to set-up all aspects of a trial.
