The Singapore Clinical Research Institute (SCRI) held the joint 3rd Annual Symposium SCRI-ICN. This year’s topic was “Advancing Clinical Research Through Expertise Development”. It took place in Singapore on 29th August 2017. ICN members and local clinical stakeholders had the opportunity to discuss on strategies to maximize clinical research, challenges in conducting international clinical trials, clinical trial operational planning and budgeting, and best practice in site operations.
During this Symposium, the SCRI Academy was launched. This Academy will house the learning and development programs for clinical research coordinators in Singapore.
In addition, the challenges for maximizing clinical research in a small footprint, such as Singapore and Switzerland, were addressed by the outgoing ICN Chairperson, Prof. Dr. Gabriela Senti.
