Many times in CR u guys hear these words - CRO / SMO / RMO !
So what exactly these are and whats the difference b/w these ?
Here I try to explain this :
1. CRO - Contract Research Organization
A Contract Research Organization (CRO) is a company contracted by a pharmaceutical or biotechnological manufacturer to manage clinical trials. CROs perform services such as, data management, statistical analysis, protocol design, and final report development.
2. SMO - Site Management Organization
A Site Management Organization (SMO) performs and manages research for individual Investigative Sites. SMOs' responsibilities include patient recruitment and protocol management.
3. RMO - Research Management Organization
A Research Management Organization (RMO) functions as a combination of a CRO and SMO to manage research from the conception and development of a project to the implementation and completion at Investigative Sites.
One day I'l open my own RMO in India and will make my country a state-of-art hub of clinical research.
And I'm sure you guys will help me in that.
Will u ? Will u ? Will u ? Will u ?
