Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 6th Annual

Managing Outsourced Clinical Trials

Building Successful Partnerships with Effective Oversight, Risk Mitigation & Resource Management

February 20-21, 2020


As more clinical trial activities are outsourced to CROs and other third-party vendors, and as those CROs and vendors grow in their capabilities, it is more important than ever for sponsors and vendors to develop strong partnerships and establish themselves as partners of choice. CHI’s 6th Annual Managing Outsourced Clinical Trials conference features case studies and lessons learned from sponsors and CROs on managing relationships, vendor quality and performance in light of the new ICH E6 R2 changes, and how to build beneficial partnerships that effectively manage resources.
