The clinical research business is largely driven and managed by people. A company with good, qualified, experienced, and trained people demonstrates sufficient credibility and capability to attract projects from sponsors. However, a sudden rise in the demand for trained and skilled professionals by many CROs and pharma companies has increased the salary levels and expectations of professionals. As an ever growing number of global companies are setting up their operations in India and as demands for the skilled professionals are also increasing, salary levels will have risen dramatically over the past few years. It is indeed a career worth considering. Besides the “fast bucks,” the clinical research profession encourages the professionals by providing them with the opportunity to work in global systems, infrastructure, and facilities. Most of the authors are very senior people, working in this field. They have contributed topics which will be of immense value for the postgraduate students in their day-to-day research.
