Benjamin Franklin famously said: “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”

This intensive accredited course has been entirely redesigned with Franklin’s cogent observation in mind so that each person can get involved in problem-solving and thus learn about how to run regulatory studies that must be performed in compliance with Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) Regulations.

Overall, the main intent is to review the roles and responsibilities of the STUDY DIRECTOR who is in overall control when running GLP studies. The learning initiative is achieved through short lectures, illustrative answers to FAQs, and by collective problem-solving workshops. The aim is to ensure that each participant is personally faced with real-life situations for which a study director has to find GLP-compliant solutions.

To understand GLP study direction you must understand how studies are planned, performed, and reported. The course also includes workshops on protocols (study plans), the implementation of procedures, and the importance of the study report within the context of the GLP safety studies.

At every research laboratory, GLP study directors inevitably have problems of GLP implementation. The participants will be challenged to give their own reactions to real-life situations and to solve the issues arising in a way compliant with the regulations.

Involving the participants in GLP decision-making processes means that they will learn and understand rather than just receiving information as they would from a standard course.

This accredited training will concentrate on existing OECD and FDA Good Laboratory Practices and their application to the workplace including recent developments such as multi-site studies.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Evaluate risks to study integrity, and develop strategies for dealing with these issues.
  • Perform preclinical studies to full GLP compliance.
  • Respond appropriately to Quality Assurance and Monitoring inspectors.
  • Build adequate communication channels with the aim of successfully dealing with the multi‐site situation.
