Clinical Professionals Address Improving Processes for Cost and Contract Management


IBC’s Upcoming Conference to Bring Together Sites, Sponsors and CROs, Maximize Research Budgets

Westborough, MA, 02/02/2005, Shrinking budgets and mounting pressure to deliver quality data continue to pressure clinical professionals to produce timely research on investigational therapies. Clinical research sites, biotechnology and pharmaceutical sponsors, and contract research organizations must strategically align contracts to monitor costs through the duration of trials in order to ensure efficient and timely delivery.

IBC’s Improving Processes for Cost and Contract Management conference is designed to address these issues and provide a forum for clinical professionals to foster communication and ultimately improve clinical trial research outcomes. The event is set for May 16-17, 2005, at the Hotel@MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Conference attendees will:

-- Hear a keynote address on “Setting the Tone: Let’s Just Play Nice Together” from Dennis LaCroix, J.D., director and senior counsel, Genzyme Corporation
-- Identify and eliminate factors contributing to scope and budget creep Examine the use of simulated trials to improve patient safety, avoid data errors, and create efficiencies that lead to lower costs and shorter timelines in clinical research
-- Learn directly from clinical research sites on how to foster stronger site-sponsor relationships by collaborating more efficiently on budgets and recruitments
-- Explore contract negotiations with guidance from a panel of legal experts who offer proven methods to make this process more productive
