Happy International Clinical Trials Day, ClinBiz Summit 2020 Update and More!

Happy International Clinical Trials Day!  In honor of International Clinical Trials Day, I invite you to take a check out our CEO’s latest LinkedIn post with a link to a must-have resource for all those involved in clinical research – hint: It is something that aims to protect clinical research’s most valuable asset – the Patient.  Check it out and share with your network, print it out, use as a screen-saver, etc.  No matter what you do with it, remember to always keep it close to you in your everyday clinical trial decisions.

As we have continued to monitor the COVID-19 situation especially as it relates to mass gatherings and travel in the next few months for the state of New Jersey, it looks like we will need to indeed hold our entire ClinBiz Summit 2020 virtually instead of the hybrid conference we usually have (in-person and online attendees).

We will be holding the entire Summit online on September 15-17, 2020.  It will have all the relevant, practical and unique perks of the ClinBiz Summit with a virtual twist, hopefully unlike any other industry conference you have attended thus far.   The virtual ClinBiz Summit 2020 will include all the amazing speakers and presentations, the pre-conference workshops, online networking options (more to come on that), virtual exhibiting of clinical trial vendors and MUCH MORE!  Currently registered attendees should have already received a separate email confirming their access to the virtual summit along with other details.
