Regulations on research involving humans

Rigorous regulations apply to all kind of research involving humans. The regulations ensure that high quality, credible data and the safety and integrity of the
individual research subjects are maintained.

Welcome to seek advice

All researchers or research teams with a connection to Linköping University, Region Östergötland or the southeast region of healthcare are welcome to seek advice from Forum Östergötland for clinical research projects. Scientific problems can be discussed in an early phase of project planning as well as in ongoing projects. However we do not have the resources to support undergraduate projects or resident projects. There are special terms for support to PhD students, such as biostatistics. 

At Forum Östergötland, we offer you:

  • Counselling at the start or underway of a clinical research project.
  • Scientific counselling.
  • Statistic and epidemiologic counselling.
  • Monitoring, project support and randomization.
  • Courses in GCP, statistics etc. (In English, we offer courses in Basic Biostatistics and Multivariate Statistics.)
  • Assistance in identifying sites/investigators for a clinical study.

We work under full confidentiality. For more information, please refer to the Swedish site or contact us below. A first meeting is always free.
