Title: At-risk to rescued: How to keep your clinical trial on track

Date: Thursday, April 21st, 2022

Time: 2:00 – 2:30 p.m. ET

Nearly 80% of clinical trials are delayed. Unreliable technology, logistics, ability to scale, diversity, and even a lack of regulatory understanding put clinical study startup and launch at risk. Delays can be costly. But more critically, delays can impact the lives of our loved ones waiting for life-saving drugs and therapies.  When significant delays or lack of key features and functions impact your confidence, clinical trials need to be rescued. Join Ericka Pickell, Shadi Zoghi, and Chris Vogel to learn how to avoid the need for a “rescue” as well as how to ensure a smooth transition when you need to get your study from stuck to back on track.
