EVENT DESCRIPTION: “Clinical Study Startup – Insights from the Real World”
“The study start up phase of clinical trials is a very crucial and timeconsuming component of the clinical study process. A key challenge in conducting the clinical trials is that it spans so many different parties, including study sponsors, contract research organizations (CROs), site management organizations (SMOs), patient recruiters, investigators and patients. It is critical that sponsors, CROs and SMOs bring the right resources, tools and techniques to the clinical trial start up process to meet study start up timelines. It is important to streamline the start up from the beginning because it sets the pace for the study. Study start up activities includes assessment of site feasibility, negotiation of contract and budgets, planning for patient recruitment, legal reviews and approvals by Institutional Review Board (IRB) and/or ethics committee.” Source: U.
