Human Protocol Research is an integrated, multidisciplinary course designed to provide students with the necessary tools to devise, execute, and understand exemplary protocol research involving humans in clinical trials. Phase 0, I, II, III, and IV trials will be discussed. Students participating in this course will gain an understanding of trial design, sample size and ethical/regulatory issues pertaining to clinical trials. 

The course is complementary and non-overlapping with Translational Sciences: Bench to the Bedside and Back (GS211232). Seminars in Clinical Cancer Treatment (GS211031) is a companion seminar series to Human Protocol Research.  It is recommended, but not mandatory, that students taking Human Protocol Research also take Seminars in Clinical Cancer Treatment (GS211031).
