Dear Mem,ber,

I had undergone 1 month training in my masters and hence can give you some inputs on how to go for selection of a topic...

If you want to do good research go for reading of research journals available at your institute. The articles on net and in journals can give you the best idea on what current topics are being searched on...the conclusion and dicussion section in the journal articles can give you points wherein there study was a limitation and you can get your study objective out of it.

Apart from it, you can choose the disease of your own interest, meet some cooperative doctors/clinicians (since you are pursuing M.Sc in Clinical Research, i suppose you will be surely doing a clinical study, right?) in your near by vicinity and work out the logistics of your project...i mean the feasibility, the no. of patients you can recruit etc...

If you have worked earlier as a professional, go for contacting small pharma companies bcoz even they sponsor and/or help you in conduct of good clinical studies...only thing, there drug/device etc should be in use in your study design

I hope atleast one alternative works for you and your friends

Regards,

Hi viji,

I don think u can allowed to do a project in humanbeings. But i can suggest you some projects like u can take a survey among some investigators on their opinion on patient recruitment in clinical trials or ethics to be followed in clinical trials. You prepare a questionairre in various sub topics and with that info give an output in a statistical way. you can visit the below link to see some of the projects offered by kriger as a internship. why cant to try this on your own!!!

Hello G. Vijayalaksmi

Dont get confused ..... 

Its very simple to choose a project (eventhough i am saying this now but i had faced the same problem  .. )

There are some basic norms which you should follow while choosing a topic ......

1) See that enough literature is available on your topic to elaborate things & clear all perspectives !!!

2) for students Cross sectional survey based studies are good  (personal opinion )
( go trough various Scientific journals to make list of topics .... )

3) See the feasibility of your topic ..... ( for example if you are taking patient recruitment strategy & taking survey of Investigators ... you should have enough contacts of Investigators )

4) Try to avoid a topic which require Ethics committee permission 
( Again it's a  personal opinion !!!  ..... there are some people who take EC permission & do their projects successfully ... but then you should have that much of patience ..... )

5) Always ask your guide for any stupid doubt  including selection of topic



Here are some of the topics which our guide gave us

* Role and real life experience of CRA in phase IV observational studies
• Problems faced by a clinical research organisations in the recruitment of healthy human
volunteers for bioavailability & bioequivalence studies with a critique of potential measures to
overcome this problem
• Role of a clinical research coordinator in screening patients in a clinical trial
• Budgeting and logistics in the conduct of an investigator initiated trial
• Elements of informed consent for trials involving subjects with psychiatric illness
• Factors influencing prescription behaviour of physicians
• Evaluation of rational use of antibiotics and analgesics in dental practice
• Reporting of Serious Adverse Event (SAE) in a clinical trial
• Role of CRA in patient retention
• Developing SOPs for Diabetes Care and Research Centre
• Post marketing surveillance of 3B generation fluoroquinolone-Gemifloxacin
• Review of product promotional materials
• Compliance of protocol in clinical trial
• Clinical data management
• Misuse of antibiotics in viral infection
• Role of post marketing surveillance in clinical research
• Bioequivalence Studies - Analysis of conduct of bioequivalence clinical trials through an actual
BE study
• Bioethics in clinical research
• To review the process of maintaining all essential documents in Clinical Trials
