Organizer PharmaTimes Media has confirmed that the 2016 edition of its annual competition for clinical researchers in the Americas will be held in association with the Annual Meeting & Expo of the Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP).
Twenty years of development has gone into the making of the PharmaTimes Competitions—a cross-industry awards program that is competency-based and peer-reviewed, recognizing candidates in a fair and relevant way. The awards are run by industry leaders to recognize, encourage and inspire professionalism in tomorrow’s leaders.
Taking place in Atlanta from April 16 to 19, the ACRP Annual Meeting & Expo is the largest annual clinical research education and networking event solely focused on the conduct of clinical trials. The conference will deliver more than 125 educational sessions for clinical research professionals, addressing more than a dozen topics critical to the clinical research process.
“PharmaTimes Clinical Researcher of the Year—The Americas” is a celebration of professional excellence, providing a valuable, practical learning and development opportunity for clinical researchers. The competition allows them to benchmark their skills against those of their peers in a learning environment and have them judged by an independent steering committee of high-level industry leaders.
Gill Chalk, head of events at PharmaTimes Media, said, “We are looking forward to working with ACRP to align its 2016 Meeting & Expo with the ‘PharmaTimes Clinical Researcher of the Year—The Americas’ competition. While the conference provides clinical research professionals with educational sessions addressing vital current clinical research issues, the competition provides a positive and practical opportunity to test how their skills and knowledge compare to those of others within the industry.”
