The CZECRIN research infrastructure, which is part of the pan-European ECRIN-ERIC network, offers its support, services and expertise to all research-oriented doctors in order to engage their forces with quick access to initiate national and especially transnational clinical studies.
St. Anne’s University Hospital Brno and her International Clinical Research Center together with Masaryk University are the founding member and the main coordinator of this Czech national infrastructure.
Within the clinical research, the CZECRIN team responded flexibly to the current situation and established the COVID 19 web section, which summarizes all ongoing and planned activities leading to clinical research and upcoming clinical studies for patients with COVID-19. “One of the key parts of VVI CZECRIN is also CZECRIN NATIONAL CTUs NETWORK, which consists of representatives of the clinical studies departments of individual healthcare facilities. In this network, the interest of healthcare facilities in engaging in clinical trials with a focus on the treatment of patients with COVID-19 was mapped, ”said Ing. Jakub Johaník, Project Manager.
