Developing medicines is a time-intensive and costly process with a high risk of failure — especially in the early phases. The entire drug development process is subject to the guidelines of Good Clinical Practice (GCP), the international standard that governs planning, implementation, documentation and reporting in clinical trials involving humans.

CTC North, located on the premises of the University Hospital Hamburg Eppendorf (UKE), is an independent full-service contract research organization. Within a university environment, the professional conduct of clinical trials can be guaranteed in accordance with the AMG (Germany’s Medicines Act) and MPG (Germany’s Medical Devices Act).
