SoCalBio Mini Conference: Finding the Best Clinical Research Organizations

Wednesday, February 13, 2019 from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM

Contract Research Organizations (CROs) are becoming an integral part of pharma and device product development value creation. Now, there are many companies that outsource all or part of their pre-clinical and clinical research to CROs. 

Given the complex regulatory landscape of the bioscience industry, the selection of a CRO is a strategic decision that impacts the prospects of getting favorable FDA outcomes. Identifying the best-fit CRO involves a variety of processes and people.
