We’ve made a few updates to the Genesis website:
- Head on over to our ABOUT page to learn more about our investigators and research team.
- Our new CLINICAL TRIALS page showcases our clinical trials experience and dedicated facilities.
- To make it easier for prospective participants to find and apply for currently enrolling clinical trials, we created the JOIN A TRIAL page.
- We have also opened up an EDUCATION portal through which investigators and research personal can access GRS-developed online training courses. Currently, we have one course on offer: an accredited Good Clinical Practice (ICH-GCP) course. A comprehensive site development course is in the works.
Next on the list is a new homepage!
GCP Online Training
Did you know that you can complete your Good Clinical Practice (GCP) training online with us? We developed and launched our very own Good Clinical Practice (ICH-GCP) course earlier this year. The course is designed to prepare investigators and research staff for the conduct of clinical trials.
The training program consists of 12 modules, providing an overview of GCP, the principles of ICH-GCP, the Australian regulatory environment, and investigator responsibilities. The course content, final quiz and certificate are compliant with the TransCelerate Site Qualification and Training (SQT) Initiative’s Minimum Criteria for Good Clinical Practice (GCP) training of investigators and site personnel (based upon ICH E6 R2), which enables the mutual, professional recognition of GCP training within the Australian clinical research industry.

CRPS Immune Profiling
Last year, Dr Russo and the Genesis team entered into a collaborative research project with Dr Paul Austin and his research team at the University of Sydney. In this study, we collected blood samples from volunteering patients with complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) and healthy participants. Dr Austin’s team performed immunophenotyping to investigate differences in immune cells between patients and controls. We found increased numbers and activation of several white blood cell subsets. The research was published in March this year. Congratulations to both teams and a huge thank you to all of the volunteers who participated in the study.
