Letter from the Editor, May 2016

081814_danielle_47-e1435073232875Spring is finally here, and with it comes a time of growth and transition at CISCRP.

CISCRP’s Spring events season is now in full swing, after kicking off with a Medical Heroes Appreciation 5K at the ACRP 2016 Meeting & Expo which brought together clinical research professionals to walk or run in honor of study volunteers. The CISCRP Events team turns its energy now to the third annual 5K event in conjunction with DIA 2016 June 27 in Philadelphia. AWARE for All events continue to educate communities around the world, too, most recently with an international program in London and a follow-up program at Howard University in Washington, DC. The next stops for AWARE will be this Fall in Miami, New Orleans, and Irvine, CA.

CISCRP is also pleased to see growth in Patient Advisory Board Panels and the Communicating Trial Results program, garnering support across the industry from sponsors and CROs who are prioritizing patient centricity and transparency.

Additionally, a budding collaboration with INC Research has both organizations putting our heads together to host an “Ideathon” think-tank to generate new ideas for increasing public awareness and engagement in clinical research in September 2016.

In light of this time of growth at CISCRP, I’d like to close by extending a warm thank you to all of our supporters. Without your dedication and enthusiasm, our many programs and events would not be possible. I wish you all the best and hope you will keep CISCRP in your thoughts.

Until next time,
