At INAF clinical studies are supervised by an experienced research staff. The teams consist of researchers, physicians, research professionals, dietitians, nurses, and highly skilled technicians. Participants’ safety and their well-being rank foremost among the research team’s concerns.
All INAF clinical studies are approved by Université Laval’s research ethics committee and are conducted in accordance with the strict ethical standards in effect.
The INAF’s clinical investigation unit has modern facilities and equipment that allow us to conduct all phases of a clinical research project at one location. There is a kitchen and dining room for onsite preparation and consumption of meals, and a spacious sampling room with comfortable sampling chairs. Some research protocols require participants to spend several hours at the clinical unit. Participants have access to amenities—computers with Internet access, TVs, closed rooms for reading, working, or resting—that make for a more pleasant stay.
