Area of Management and Documentation of Clinical Trials. This is the area where all the documentation related to the development of Clinical Trials activity is efficiently organized, controlled, and managed, both by the Institut de Recerca and the Hospital Sant Pau.

This cross-cutting area is a firm commitment to providing optimal working conditions for all professionals associated with it. In this way, compliance with Good Clinical Practices and the Data Protection Law is ensured.

AGDAC was inaugurated on October 24, 2007, thanks to the initiative of the Management, to centralize the documentation of clinical trials that, until that year, was distributed among different departments. Currently, AGDAC is located on the -2 floor of Hospital Sant Pau.
