CISCRP holds special events throughout the year to educate, raise awareness, and further our mission. We host open events for patients and the public, as well as presentations and seminars for research and medical professionals. Although we are based in Boston, events are often held in cities across the world, so look out for us in your area! For many events, CISCRP relies on support from government agencies, foundations, and industry members. Please email Ellyn at to learn more about event sponsorship opportunities.

Join us for our Medical Heroes Appreciation 5K Run & Walk in Boston, MA to celebrate the study volunteers who give the gift of participation in clinical research. Prizes for top runners, top fundraisers, the team with the most spirit and more!

All proceeds will provide education and outreach about clinical research participation to patients and their families in minority and under-served communities. This event will be held in conjunction with the DIA 2018 Global Annual Meeting. 


The DIA 2018 Global Annual Meeting brings together thousands of biopharma researchers, developers, and regulators to drive innovation from the lab, through regulatory approval, to patients.  Designed to drive insights into action by connecting key policy discussions to real-world knowledge that you need to do your job every day, your attendance will accelerate your growth and your organization’s performance in the development ecosystem.

For more information and to learn about sponsorship opportunities, please email Ellyn Getz.

It is said that the greatest gift is one which is given anonymously, giving when you do not know whether you will get direct personal benefit. Medical Heroes give us this unique gift.

Medical Heroes are the individuals who help advance public health and medical knowledge by taking part in clinical research trials. They are found in everyday places, and they deserve our support and gratitude. Proceeds from this event will provide education and outreach to patients and their families. Our impact is powered by your generosity and dedication to our cause.
