In conjunction with the North Carolina Biotech Center, LSL conducts semi-annual symposiums addressing emerging issues in clinical trials. Some of the past topics addressed by the symposium include the European directive (presented in conjunction with Chiltern), contracting with academic institutions (presented in conjunction with Duke University and UNC-Chapel Hill) and conducting clinical trials in Canada (presented in conjunction with the Canadian Consulate and Genome Canada).
Finally, LSL attorneys are knowledgeable about HIPAA, the EU Directive, Stark Anti-kickback provisions, Part 11, and other regulatory requirements impacting clinical trials contracting. We are also able to provide our clients with advice on their recruitment practices and informed consents.
