Central Unit of Support to Clinical Research and Clinical Trials (UCAICEC)

Developed by: Instituto de Investigación Sanitaria Gregorio Marañón


This is a Research Support Service that is intended for all Institute researchers who require support in the logistic, operational and regulatory design of clinical trials and observational studies. The UCAICEC is conceived as a unit dedicated to the promotion and support of Clinical Research and Quality Clinical Trials through an integral support to the researcher in the planning, development, processing and execution of non-commercial studies and clinical trials.

Among the activities developed by UCAICEC is the management of the Platform for Clinical Trials (CAIBER) in our center. CAIBER is a consortium between the general administration of the state represented by the Institute of Health Carlos III (ISCIII), some regional governments and 40 health centers represented by their corresponding foundations. From an organizational point of view, CAIBER is formed by a Technical Office located in the ISCIII and 40 Central Units of Clinical Research and Clinical Trials located in each center.
