The INT Grant Office provides timely advice and information to researchers on funding opportunities: coordinates the participation of the research projects to funding programs; provides information on the internal procedures for submissions of project proposals; supports researchers to the submission and the final financial report and audit processes.

The CTC supports Clinical Researchers in managing many aspects of investigational clinical studies, such as study design and statistical validation, submission to the Ethics Committee and regulatory authorities (AIFA for Phase I studies), budget and contract related issues, as well as data management and statistical analysis, thanks to data managers, medical statisticians, and an administrative and specialist. The CTC also provides pharmacovigilance through “ad hoc” trained pharmacist, employs qualified Research Nurses to improve patient care in the various steps of the study (scheduling of treatments, blood sampling, exams, controls, etc.), and laboratory biologists to handle tissue and blood samples for pharmacokinetics and molecular studies. The CTC works through validated and updated SOP and electronic CRF customized for each study; personnel education and training is coordinated by the Scientific Directorate.

The CTC is also improving the organization of sponsored clinical trials, speeding up administrative processes, budget definition, patient recruitment and data management, organizing a centralized record of all radio-diagnostic exams, and assisting Clinical Monitors in their visits. 

The INT Technology Transfer Office (TTO) was created in 2009 to address two requirements: improve research results in a scientific and economic key and optimize processes in technology transfer and intellectual property management. The TTO offers support services for patent activities (from the beginning of a new invention to the filling and maintenance of the correspondent patent), spin off evaluation and dissemination of IP culture within researchers.
