CRAB Presented at 2016 SRA International Western/Midwest Section Meeting

Doug Mounce, Grants & Contracts Manager, Tammy Buist, Chief Business Development Officer, and Frank X. Curci JD, Ater Wynne LLP, CRAB Board Member, presented at the 2016 Western/Midwest Section Meeting of the Society of Research Administrators (SRA International) at 9:00 AM on Wednesday, May 18, 2016 at the Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront. The presentation title is W106: Spotlight on Clinical Trials.

There is a natural concern with the responsibility implied by assuming the role of “sponsor” in a clinical trial agreement. In addition, the investigator is the sponsor for Investigator Sponsored Trials (ISTs, sometimes called Investigator Initiated Trials or IITs - the type of trials that CRAB often manages for the Clinical Trials Consortium). This presentation gave an overview on (1) Navigating the Waters of Clinical Trials, (2) Rules and Regulations that Impact Institutional Policies and Procedures, and (3) Legal Considerations that Impact Clinical Trial Sponsorship.
