The clinical research industry in Ukraine has come a long way in recent years, with significant investments in infrastructure, technology, and human resources.
The recently introduced centralised electronic health system, which already has more than 500 million electronic medical records, successfully overcame all war-related challenges. All our hospitals have their own power sources and stable internet connections. As a result of the collective effort of all stakeholders, the majority of research sites that are not in the occupied or adjacent territories continue their job as usual in ongoing trials:
Sites have all systems and capabilities in place to produce high-quality data.
Studies are monitored (on-site and remotely) by CRAs (Clinical Research Associate or Trial Monitor) and inspected by Regulatory Authorities.
Samples are shipped to neighbouring counties by land and later via air to distant destinations
The country also offers a favourable regulatory environment, with a well-established legal framework for clinical trials that support fast startup times.
FutureMeds is a fast-growing independent Dedicated Research Site Network supporting pharmaceutical companies, Sponsors and CROs and contributing to research to find effective treatments and medications for all patients who need them.
