    Default using the noun 'conduction'

    Can the noun 'conduction' be used in the following context?

    This I hope should equip me not only with the skills required to guide and initiate changes in the conduction of clinical trials but wil enable me to interact with the multi-disciplinary network involved in clinical drug trials.

    No, you can't use conduction that way, but I think you can use conduct there.

    I did a Google search, which suggested that 'conduction' is not used that way in medical language.
