Event Summary:

For pharma companies the pressure to complete clinical trials on time and within budget becomes tremendous. Growing competition for clinical investigators and patients, higher regulatory demands, and shrinking product lifecycles are only a few of the reasons. As a result the companies strive for strong partnerships and highly qualified staff to enhance their clinical trial processes. Concretely, what are the strategies to address this unique set of challenges?

Our 3rd Annual Conference on Enhancing Clinical Trial Processes gathers executives and operational personnel from the top players in clinical research & development. Specialists from the industry meet in Rome to identify new strategic partnerships and benchmark best practices in the area of clinical staff training, patient recruitment, outsourcing, and pediatric clinical trials. Through presentations and interactive discussions the participants gain new insights and share hands-on experiences on latest tools and trends for the efficient conduct of clinical trials.
