Principles and Practices of Clinical Research 4th Edition

John I. Gallin; Frederick P. Ognibene; Laura Lee Johnson

This is a great reference book for anyone interested in broad aspects of drug discovery and development.  The book covers history; ethics, regulations and law, study design and biostatistics; technology transfer, data management, sources of research funding; and clinical research infrastructure.  With so much content, this book is not likely to be read cover-to-cover.   The fourth edition, published in 2018, is fairly current.  The book has more about NIH-funded research than research and development funded by industry sponsors.  However the scientific process and principles are covered extensively and quite well.
