As biotech and pharma companies have become more streamlined and “virtual”, the use of CROs to conduct and/or manage portions of, or all of, a complete IND-enabling program has become common practice.  However the complexity of such programs, involving expertise in drug synthesis, regulatory, CMC, bioanalysis, toxicology, chemistry, pathology and related disciplines makes management of these many inputs very challenging and subject to risks of poor execution or delayed submissions.  This webinar, presented by a CRO-industry veteran, will provide insights on best practices, highlight common pitfalls, and identify “trade secrets” that can benefit industry newcomers, as well as more seasoned professionals.  Topics  addressed will include: CRO qualification/selection, contracts, scheduling, protocol/program design, study conduct and monitoring, data and report review, and more.  The session is intended to help participants interact more effectively and constructively with their CRO partners and to ultimately save time, money & headaches in their development programs.
