This year’s keynote speaker will be Keith Eaton, MD, PhD. Dr. Eaton is an Associate Member of the Clinical Research Division at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Washington. Dr. Eaton is also part of the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance and serves as Medical Director of the Infusion and Pharmacy Services and the Clinical Director, Thoracic/Head and Neck Oncology.

The goal of the AACI Clinical Research Initiative (CRI) is to improve clinical trials management at cancer centers. To help achieve this goal, the CRI annual meeting provides opportunities for clinical trials administrative and medical directors and staff to share best practices – through peer-to-peer networking, collaboration and ongoing communication – that can lead to the development of more effective treatments for patients with cancer.
