ICON has won the clinical research team of the year award at the annual 2011 Scrip Awards.
ICON won the award for a project involving the unexpected, rapid closure of selective populations participating in a mega trial program consisting of over 19,000 subjects at approximately 900 sites world-wide. The close-out was achieved initially by careful consideration of the regulatory and ethics considerations relating to the closure and subsequently by the careful planning and coordination of activities that were required to achieve a complete and appropriate closure.
“We are delighted with the award from Scrip and that our team has been recognized as the industry’s best. The unexpected closure of selective populations in a mega-trial program is a highly unusual situation which demanded a clear understanding of the regulatory and ethics considerations, a detailed and achievable plan, excellent communication, good leadership and a dedicated, hardworking team. Our team performed this complex task exceptionally and it’s nice to see that their efforts have been recognized," said Ciaran Murray, CEO, ICON.
