Australia has almost as long-a-history of conducting clinical trials to a high standard as clinical research practice itself!

Australia has a rich research environment, highly experienced investigators and research professionals, coupled with excellent health care infrastructure and a strong intellectual property regime. Many Australian investigators and researchers are world leaders in their field. There are many attractive features of research and development in Australia. Notably, current efforts to simplify the ethics approval process is ongoing. A new clinical trials website and a register for clinical trial participants also aim to facilitate the recruitment of subjects in Australia. Australia does not require full regulatory submission and approval for the conduct of clinical trials. Rather, it uses a notification process only which significantly reduces the time required to set up and start a clinical trial.

The Australian government also provides financial support to research through the R&D tax incentive, which provides either ‘cash back’ or tax offsets to R&D spend.
