We run a wide range of in-house courses on research best practice.

In addition to our training other courses are available: For a list of Research Training available, please click here [PDF 274KB].

It is the policy of both Queen Mary and Barts Health that all researchers conducting research at our sites must attend appropriate training. It is mandated that all researchers of MHRA regulated trials must complete a GCP course and refresh it every 2 years. The same is advised as the best practice for all other researchers.

For Chief Investigators and their team leads our substantive and refresher courses are mandatory. For all other sponsored research the please see the sponsor's criteria for what training is necessary. For site delivery staff the NIHR training programme is generally suitable.

If you have completed relevant training in research governance, good clinical practice or good clinical laboratory practice, it is important to ensure that you record this.
