Press Release


Posted on: 07 Aug 08
August 7, 2008 - MONROVIA, CA – GTCbio just announced the commencement of its inaugural conference on Global Clinical Trial Operations taking place on September 25-26, 2008 in San Diego, CA.

Outsourcing to CROs has proven to be much more cost effective and less time consuming when conducting clinical trials. The steps to ensuring a successful trial are long and crucial to the approval of a drug. Companies must consider many aspects of a clinical trial design and ask themselves numerous questions such as: how do I identify the right patients, how do I choose a proper site, what are the import and export regulations in other countries? GTCbio’s Global Clinical Trial Operations Conference will provide in-depth answers to these questions as well as cover the steps to maximize an outsourcing relationship and identifying the right partner.

The conference brings together top industry leaders including directors, vice presidents, heads, managers, and CROs from all over the world to collaborate and discuss the latest strategies in conducting clinical trials globally. The conference covers the operations and logistics required to conduct early and late stage phases of clinical trials in the U.S., Asia Pacific, Central & South America, and Central & Eastern Europe. Also included are discussions on conducting pediatric clinical trials and the use of technology in clinical trials to improve efficiency.

Keynote presentations will be given by Debasish Roychowdhury, Senior Vice President, Medicines Development, Oncology R&D, at GlaxoSmithKline and Amrit Ray, Vice President, Medical Safety Assessment, GPV&E at Bristol-Myers Squibb.
