INC Research awards SCRS membership scholarships
Global CRO INC Research is a major sponsor and participant in the Society for Clinical Research Sites (SCRS) Asia/Pacific Site Solutions Summit set for July 30-31 in Melbourne, Australia. As part of INC’s sponsorship of the Asia/Pacific summit, the company is awarding SCRS membership scholarships to all attending sites that currently are not society members.
In 2014, INC Research became the first organization to support the SCRS’ new member scholarship program as part of the company’s Circle of Sustainability sponsorship of the society. Through the scholarship program, INC Research supports the SCRS goal of expanding site membership to 5,000 sites. Following the Asia/Pacific summit, INC will have granted more than 175 SCRS membership scholarships to sites around the world.
“Asia/Pacific continues to grow in importance across the biopharmaceutical industry,” said Alan Ong, executive vice president of Asia/Pacific. “Supporting and sustaining strong sites helps INC conduct vital research in a region that is home to almost 60% of the world’s population. INC has been at the forefront of listening to and engaging with sites to provide tools and resources that increase efficiency, reduce financial burdens and improve performance. By actively participating in the SCRS Asia/Pacific summit, INC maintains and deepens relationships with clinical researchers.”
INC Research continues to grow and enhance capabilities across Asia/Pacific, with 20 offices in locations across the region, including Japan, China, India, Australia, Singapore, Philippines, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and New Zealand.
