How to hire a clinical trial expert

A new treatment for a certain condition or disease is only made available to the general public after thorough testing is done through clinical trials. Those tests constitute scientific studies where a certain drug, substance, treatment or intervention is tested in real people.

In a clinical trial, the investigator assigns participants to specific groups, which is typically done through randomization. Clinical trials are performed through different phases. They can be used for testing a new drug, a vitamin, a new diet, a less invasive surgical intervention, a diagnostic tool or even a medical device.

Before a clinical trial starts, it requires approval of an institution or health organization (such as the US Food and Drug Administration), which varies depending on the country where the trial is performed.


What are the phases in a clinical trial protocol?

Testing of a new drug is focused on safety and effectives, which are usually performed through four distinct phases:


·        Phase I: the drug is tested on a small group of people to see if it is safe and to learn about its potential side effects, usually 20-80 people are included in Phase I clinical trials.

·        Phase II: the drug is tested on a bigger group for its effectiveness to treat a certain condition or disease. It also further evaluates safety and side-effects, usually with 100-300 people included.

·        Phase III: in order to learn more about the new drug, it is tested in different populations and using different dosages, sometimes combined to other treatments. It generally includes a few hundred people up to about 3000. If the clinical trial shows beneficial results and the drug is safe to be used by the general public, it is approved after phase III.

·        Phase IV: the drug has been approved and safety and effectiveness are monitored for longer periods of time for long-term effects.


What can you get from clinical trial consulting?

Professionals who work with clinical trials usually gather a lot of expertise in this field. Grant applications, ethical approval, writing of articles based on clinical trial results and government approval are just a few of the areas where clinical research experts can help you.

Job titles include:  Clinical research associate, Biostatistician, Medical researcher, Clinical researcher, Healthcare research, Principal investigator, Research associate, Research consultant.

Why should you get help from a clinical research expert?

If you are conducting clinical studies for one of the most common reasons below, you might want to consider collaborating with a freelance clinical research expert.

·        Evaluation of one, two or comparing several treatment interventions, such as use of drugs, medical devices, health supplements, surgery and other types of therapy for treating a certain disease, condition or syndrome.

·        Learning about prevention or recurrence of a certain condition or disease, which can include use of different medicines, vitamins, vaccines, or even lifestyle changes, such as diet and exercising.

·        Evaluation of one, two or several diagnosing tools for a particular condition or disease.

·        Evaluation of different methods for identifying risk factors for a disease or condition.

·        Exploring alternatives to improve supportive and palliative care for people with a chronic and/or terminal disease.

How much does it cost to hire a clinical trial expert?

Professionals specialized in clinical trials are certainly in demand. For a minimum of 30-40 USD per hour, it is possible to collaborate with a freelance expert in this field. At Kolabtree you can also choose to pay a fixed rate for your entire project, which can be more cost-effective for longer projects.

How to write an effective job to hire help through freelance clinical trial experts

Include the following in your job description so that you get proposals from relevant freelancers. 

·        Project description or scope of work: be specific about which phase for the clinical trial and what are the deliverables expected.

·        Duration of the project: specify if this is a short or long-term collaboration.

·        By when you need to hire: be clear if you are in a hurry to start with the collaboration.

·        Budget: can be paid per hour or per project.

·        Skills required: you should be looking for someone with experience in health care, pharmaceuticals, clinical research, and statistics, among others.
