Legal Team

TASC Legal works under the direction of senior management in the College of Medicine and NHS Tayside Board on legally binding agreements relating to clinical research management.

TASC

The team supported the development of TASC by drafting the written arrangements setting out the innovative TASC structure, including the TASC Executive. Agreements were put in place to establish joint governance structures between the University and NHS Tayside and set out arrangements for co-sponsorship.

Support for Studies

The team provides advice and support services during the set up and conduct phases of clinical trials and clinical research studies co-sponsored by Dundee and Tayside or hosted in Tayside. The unit works closely with University and NHS investigators. Within the TASC office, the unit works closely with the other business units including the commercial business team, the non-commercial approvals team, the governance team and the Clinical Trials Unit.

AHSP

In June 2014 written arrangements establishing the Academic Health Science Partnership in Tayside (AHSP) were drafted by TASC Legal.

Regional Development

TASC Legal supports the development of the East of Scotland collaboration, documenting links with NHS Fife & Forth Valley and the Universities of Stirling and St. Andrews.

Scottish and UK initiatives

At national level, TASC Legal makes representations to the Chief Scientists Office in relation to consultations on UK-wide model clinical trial agreements. The team links with other Scottish HEI’s and NHS Boards with the aim to bring about harmonisation of the contracts management process for clinical research. TASC Legal supported the establishment of the Stratified Medicines Scotland Innovation Centre, a unique facility for the Scottish research community with a mission to find the right drug for the right patient at the right time.
