Hear what some of our previous attendees had to say:
“The future of contracting in clinical operations relies on the marriage between clinical operations and finance teams. This presentation captures and relays best practices in an exciting and engaging way!”
-- Jesse Wheeler, Clinical Trial Administrator, CRX.
“Good conference of the state of the art issues and difficulties in managing finances (forecasts/payments) in clinical research.”
-- Mike Neidl, Vice President, Genzyme
“This conference filled in a lot of the missing links of information for coordinating efforts to execute contracts and grants. Understanding different perspectives from finance and operations and then communicating, is essential for success.” -- Stephanie Stec, Clinical Trial Coordinator, Schering Plough
“Terrific conference- especially the speakers. I wish I had done this course when I started my role a year and a half back as it was a sharing of practical/hands on experiences.”
-- Rama Rao, Executive Director Finance, Novartis
“The conference was logically planned and well run. All speakers were very experienced, and I definitely learned a great deal from the interactive presentations. I look forward to next year!”
-- Victor Lucariello, Grants Specialist, Schering Plough
