Research Resilience – Special Session on Clinical Research Operations during COVID-19

This town hall will be specifically aimed at the Clinical Research Coordinator (CRC) and study team community. In the hour-and-a-half session, we will discuss clinical research operations topics pertinent to the tasks and workflows of CRCs during the time of COVID-19. We will also introduce a new training resource for study teams related to clinical research during COVID-19, and select CRCs will highlight how their studies have adapted to pandemic guidelines, showcasing the great work and responsiveness of study teams during this time.

Please submit questions in advance here so that we may organize and assign them to our presenters.
