About RDC Clinical

RDC Clinical is the recruitment arm of RDC Global, a clinical research organisation within the industries of complimentary medicines, dietary supplements, foods and cosmetics.

At RDC we strongly believe in evidence based medicine. Our passion is researching innovative products that have the potential to offer a real benefit to the end-user.

While we are an Australian owned business located in Brisbane, our clients are located around Australia and from many countries around the world. Australia has a robust clinical trial framework with some of the world’s highest standards which make it an attractive destination for international sponsors seeking high-quality clinical trials.

All RDC Clinical Trials are conducted in compliance with the Good Clinical Practice (GCP) guidelines. All trials are additionally approved by a human ethics committee, which thoroughly examines all aspects of the trial’s design, protocol, and safety before the trial is given the approval to commence.

What is the research used for?

The research we conduct is used in a number of ways:

  • to be published in relevant journals to share publicly with the scientific, medical and general community;
  • to present to regulatory authorities around the world to assist regulatory compliance and marketing approvals; and
  • for product developers to learn more about the performance of their products which assists in further advancements.

What kinds of products are studied?

At RDC we only study products which are already approved for use within Australia by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) or food and cosmetic products that are able to be legally supplied within Australia.

This means that you can rest assured that any trial product that you are provided is safe for human use.

Our Trial Team

Our Clinical Trial Team is lead by Amanda Rao (RDC Founder & Director). We are a friendly bunch of professionals with extensive experience in designing and running clinical trials. Each study has a Principal Investigator who oversees the trial, and is supported by trial co-ordinators and health professionals.

In addition to our in-house team, we regularly collaborate with academics, scientists and medical professionals who provide their specific expertise to our trials.
