What is BUCIF

On 10-11th May 2004 the Association for Good Clinical Practice and Clinical Research Development in Bulgaria & European Forum for Good Clinical Practice (EFGCP) organised a Seminar on the Implementation of the EU Directive on Good Clinical Practice in Bulgaria. A proposal for establishing a Bulgarian Clinical Investigators Forum as a part of the Association was discussed.

The proposal for the establishment of a Bulgarian Clinical Investigators Forum (BUCIF) aims to help the development of the clinical research in Bulgaria and at the same time to give the members the opportunity to exchange ideas and to collaborate in the development of highly professional working standards while conducting clinical trials.
