How do you decide if a trial protocol is a good use of your time? What tactics can help you negotiate a better budget, and how can you tell if the funds from the sponsor will cover the cost of the study?

Join us for the second installment in our two-part series, Working with Industry, on Tuesday, May 28. Featuring an expert panel and roundtable discussion, you’ll learn more about the fundamental steps to activate an industry-sponsored trial here at the U-M and how the Clinical Trials Support Office team can help with its administration.

Part Two will examine first-hand faculty and staff experiences involving:

  • How to get started – from receiving the protocol to opening a study
  • What factors are important to consider when determining trial participation?
  • The basics of budgets and contracts – how the CTSU Finance team helps investigators

Panelists include:

  • Peter Higgins, MD, PhD  – Professor of Internal Medicine - Gastroenterology
  • Cyndi Bower, MS – Director for Clinical Trials Operations
  • Kate Huffman – Site Development and Strategic Partnership Lead
  • Amy Oliver – Finance Team Lead, ACD CTSU

A ‘meet and greet’ will follow the panel discussion. Refreshments Provided.
