As a Clinical Research Center (CRC), CHLO provides to the clinical investigators the necessary administrative support to perform clinical trials in all medical specialties.

The Clinical Research Department is the infrastructure specifically dedicated to clinical trials and scientific projects. With exclusively personnel, this office centralises and facilitates administrative interactions between the Administration and the study teams in the hospital center. The major focus of this clinical research center is to conduct international clinical trials (academic and commercial) complying with ICH GCP (Good Clinical Practice Guidelines).
CHLO is a public Hospital, negotiation and submission of the clinical trials contracts are submitted in the Clinical Research Department and approved by the hospital Administration
All the facilities are common to care activities but all ensure equipment specifically allocated for clinical trials (when applicable).
Clinical trial staff trained on a regular basis in GCP 
Communication with scientific community by email and direct contact phone.
No certification, a Quality Management System (QMS) for the Clinical Research Center is under development establishing and ensuring the quality of processes, data, and documentation associated with clinical research activities.
