Hands-on Approach for the Conduct of Nonclinical Studies: A Manual for Anticipating and Avoiding Potential Problems focuses on practical approaches to real-life challenges faced during nonclinical studies, providing insights into the anticipation of potential problems and solutions to problems which may arise, thus saving time, money and resources. The book outlines Good Laboratory Practice in detail and includes regulatory guidelines, communication, stakeholder information and case studies. It is essential reading for study directors/technical coordinators, quality assurance personnel, all technical staff and project managers. In addition, it offers guidance for those new to the area, while also acting as a reference for senior researchers.
