The SCOPE Scientific Symposium (SSS)

Tuesday: February 18, 2020 from 3:00 to 5:00 pm at CHI’s SCOPE Summit in Orlando

The new SSS provides a forum where academics, sponsors, CROs, and other parties who share a common interest in the conduct of clinical trials can discuss the latest and most promising research that advances how we run clinical trials. We are focusing on research to improve a process that in many ways is outdated and in dire need for efficiencies. The panelists will discuss promising research and technologies that can bring data-driven, scientific practices to clinical research design and execution. These improvements should result in better decisions in new drug evaluations; providing patients with broader and more rapid access to novel medications. The panel discussion will feature the committee members below, all thought leaders, sharing ideas in a collegial atmosphere.

  • Attending: There is no added cost to attend this event at SCOPE, but Attendees and Speakers must be registered as a “Best Value” SCOPE conference participant (using discount code SSS). If you would like to attend, please contact us.
