CRO Advancement Summit – CRO Advancement Summit

As the costs of getting new drugs to market are continually rising, the importance of successfully completing clinical trials has never been greater. In recent years there has been a growing demand for the outsourcing of clinical operations, resulting in a surge in demand for CROs who specialize in these functions. The personnel needs of clinical trial executives have consequently shifted, now requiring leaders to embody the knowledge of skills and strategies to advance CRO partnerships. With strict timelines and heavy investments at risk, improper partnerships between CROs and stakeholders can be more than detrimental to the success of a clinical trial as well as the reputations of industry players.

The CRO Advancement Summit will bring together operations professionals from Pharma and CRO firms to collaborate on issues that are commonly faced during the execution and management of clinical trials. Experts will facilitate conversations regarding contract models and negotiation, communication and transparency standards, timeline management and risk mitigation to enhance stakeholders’ ability to streamline operations and drive efficiency.
