Clinical Research LIVE Webinar: “Opportunities and Challenges for Clinical Research in a post-COVID World.”
13 January 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST
Join Program Manager Nicole Pereira and Instructor Dr. Miran Kenk for a special LIVE webinar:
“Opportunities and Challenges for Clinical Research in a post-COVID World.”
“The COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally changed medicine in Canada and around the world, drastically altering how we conduct clinical research. This has challenged national and international regulatory frameworks established decades ago, requiring a quick pivot to new technological solutions. In this webinar, we will discuss the challenges faced by clinical research and how the application of ethical principles are not only meeting today’s demands, but benefitting science and increasing the accessibility and efficacy of clinical research overall.”
