Partnerships in Clinical Trials Expands its Global Reach
News Nov 03, 2009
The Institute for International Research announces that as a chief component of its global branding strategy, the Partnerships with CROs event is now known as Partnerships in Clinical Trials.
In the nineteen years since the inception of the event, both the biopharmaceutical industry and Partnerships have experienced tremendous growth as outsourcing to suppliers has become more than simply a tactic to control costs, but a leading strategic directive to ensure speed, quality and value of new medicines.
“The name Partnerships in Clinical Trials reflects the comprehensive nature of the program, which is the must-attend annual event for clinical outsourcing and development professionals and is increasingly valuable to those with responsibilities in clinical operations, clinical project management, drug safety and quality,” said program director Lesly Atlas. “Our new name also represents our widening global reach with Partnerships in Clinical Trials events already taking place in Europe and the premier of our APAC event in Singapore this December. Collectively the Partnerships in Clinical Trials brand serves over 35 countries.”
