The Role of the Clinical Trial Patient in the Era of Personalized Medicine

The field of clinical research continues to accelerate and change at a rapid pace. Whether you work on the Sponsor, Clinical Research Organization (CRO) or site side of the industry, keeping up with anticipated changes and common trends is essential. This workshop aims to bring clinical research professionals together to connect and learn about the upcoming trends in clinical research.

Building off the 1st seminar on Personalized Medicine and Clinical Trials, on Tuesday, April 11th we plan to discuss ethical, legal and economic implications to the patient. In an interactive workshop setting with the patient being the center focus, we will discuss strategies on how to improve patient education, awareness, and access to care in the evolving field of personalized medicine in the clinical trial setting. Come join us as we discuss and problem solve real issues in clinical research!
