Main tasks of the IELSG are the development and the conduction of biological and clinical studies to improve our knowledge and identify new treatments and ways to cure lymphomas. To carry out these activities, the IELSG works closely with the investigators of the many institutes that have become part of its network.
The IELSG Operating Office provides expertise in several areas of clinical trial development and conduction, in compliance with ICH/GCP and the different national regulations, policies and procedures.
