Executive Summary form
Partnerships in Clinical Trials 2011— our 20th anniversary—marked a major milestone in the event's history at a pivotal time in the industry's history. While there was much to celebrate and reflect upon, there was also a sense of uncertainty and tension uncommon in clinical research circles in past years—and a palpable sense of urgency to shake up the industry.
What started 20 years ago as a modest gathering of outsourced clinical trial providers and sponsor organizations working to optimize relationships and create innovative business models has gradually become the largest and most influential meeting of its kind.
So it is with great pleasure that we present this summary coverage of some of the most informative and compelling presentations and panels in the Partnerships in Clinical Trials 2011 program for your review and consideration.
