Why Should You Attend:

The success of a clinical trial will often depend on the sites’ abilities to conduct clinical trials in a timely manner. Because of the costs involved, sponsors need to select sites they know can recruit the right patients, follow the study protocol, respect deadlines, report clinical results adequately and retain trial participants. Selecting a CRO that is aligned with the sponsor’s goals is crucial factor in completing a successful trial.

This session will outline the best ways to identify your trial needs to select a CRO, the right people to talk to, contract negotiations, ownership and accountability and challenges in the Sponsor-CRO relationship.

Topic Background:

There is a wealth of information on the internet about CROs. Narrowing down the choices and finding the best fit for your needs may be something that can be managed by you.

After the initial internet search and asking colleagues, the next step will be to contact the vendors and begin the process of requesting more in depth information about particular study types and designs. Connecting with the right individuals to gather all of this critical information is not always as streamlined as one might expect. It is not uncommon for there to be a bit of a gap between business development and the science. Knowing who to speak to and how to cut through to the chase can make a tremendous difference.
