The Pulse on Study Conduct by Elizabeth Weeks-Rowe
Without collaboration, there is little opportunity for progress in clinical research. From preclinical to postmarketing research, from project assistant to project lead, from CRO to pharmaceutical sponsors, our commonality is our mutual reliance on each other. All work and efforts throughout a study cycle have the impact of a domino effect. Synchronicity ensures productivity, while division results in chaos and detrimental delays. It is our responsibility to work together to protect study patients and produce credible data, two of the most critical elements of drug development.
