In partnership with Cambridge Healthtech Institute & SCOPE Webinar series
Exactly one year ago, we met with panelists at Top 25 Pharma companies, Biogen and GSK, and vendors, PCI Clinical Services and Suvoda, to discuss how adaptations in the clinical supply chain would shape the way clinical operations will function in the future.
With 2020 behind us, our panelists will reflect on a year’s experience navigating the effects of the pandemic to explore best ways to implement emergent trial designs and trends in supply chain strategy. They will speak about what clinical operations trends will remain or arise as our society moves beyond the impact of COVID-19.
