Clinical Trials Office Budget Development on Agenda for CRI Meeting

Set for July 20-21, in Chicago, the 8th Annual AACI Clinical Research Initiative Meeting will feature a panel discussion on "Clinical Trials Office Budget Development". Presenters will discuss financial reporting metrics for their cancer center clinical trials offices and their use of budget modeling. In addition, they will examine innovative processes for justifying trial startup costs, how to identify and capture underfunded trial costs, and the benefits of conducting a review for closed trials to assess budget performance.

Wednesday, June 15, is the last day to register before late registration rates apply. Information on the meeting, including the program and electronic registration is available on the AACI website.

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.
