“As the leader in clinical research workforce development​, we want to showcase leading talent in clinical research operations and to shine the spotlight on organizations and professionals who represent excellence,”​ he told us.

A panel of industry experts will judge each team’s ability to “collaboratively and creatively”​ overcome challenges presented during the competition.

The judges will pay close attention to team’s ability to solve challenges “while exemplifying operational efficiency, innovation, teamwork, effectiveness, cost constraint, and communication,”​ Kremidas said.

The challenge will be conducted Thursday, April 11 during ACRP’s 2019 annual conference in Nashville, TN. The awards and recognition ceremony will be held on Friday, April 12.
