Clinical Study Site Facility Contract (Sponsor-friendly)
A contract between a commercial sponsor and a research institution-affiliated clinical trial study site (typically a hospital). It is necessary when a research institution enters into a clinical trial contract (CTA) with a sponsor but does not have the facilities or legal authority to bind an affiliated hospital to the CTA's terms. This template includes provisions that are commonly seen in study site contracts, such as the scope of the clinical investigation, the parties' responsibilities, access to study records, compliance with laws, compensation, confidentiality, intellectual property ownership, publication rights, and indemnification. It is drafted in favor of the commercial sponsor, yet is intended to be fair and in line with industry standards.
