Clinical Trial Collaborations Supports

MS Society

Overview

The Conference Forum and CenterWatch are pleased to present together for the first time a 2016 strategic conference on identifying better solutions to drive more efficient R&D operations, especially as it applies to outsourcing, clinical research and clinical care.

CTC_overview-KenThe conference presents insightful ideas and challenges for both R&D operations, CRO and site executives to discover new ways of collaborating. Clinical Trial Collaborations is designed for senior level clinical operation executives from large, medium, and small pharmas, CROs and Sites. Patient advocacy organizations also welcome to attend.

We are delighted to have Ken Getz, Director, Sponsored Research Programs, Tufts CSDD, confirmed to co-chair the conference. Mr. Getz help set the stage by providing a historical perspective on why we are no faster on average today than in the mid-90s at moving a drug through development and approval. He opens the program with a keynote on, “How the Drug Development Landscape is Changing and the Impact on R&D Operations,” thus setting the theme for the program. The opening keynote provides attendees with an opportunity to challenge and discuss the presented data and to work through solutions with fellow peers to tie them back into implementation.

We are honored to have Robert Califf, MD, MACC, Deputy Commissioner for Medical Products and Tobacco, FDA, as a keynote speaker to conclude our program via webcast. We are also honored to welcome Covance’s CEO, Deborah Keller and Quintiles’ CEO, Tom Pike. Deborah will share insights on how CTC_overview-KomathiCROs can become better partners and Tom will address global R&D operation realities and how sponsors can better leverage their CRO. We are also delighted to confirm Katherine Vandebelt, Global Head, Clinical Innovation, Eli Lilly and Company to join Ken as co-chair. Katherine will also be moderating the session dedicated to making way for new site models.

In expanding our examples of collaborations, we are pleased to have Komathi Stem, Strategic Innovation Leader, Genentech/Roche to address the call for greater collaborations between clinical research and clinical care.

 

Sincerely,
