QUALITY ASSURANCE

TCD’s auditors are internationally qualified and have conducted more than a hundred audits across Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, South-America and Europe to date.

The medical monitoring team is responsible for supporting the project with safety data review as well as review of clinical data associated with SAEs per sponsor specifications provided.
