As a follow up to our well received 2006 and 2007 events, CBI is once again designing a patient recruitment conference that truly meets the market’s needs.  As companies face increased pressure to reduce costs and increase speed of clinical trials, there is significant scrutiny on all aspects of the clinical process.  Despite improvements throughout clinical trials, patient recruitment remains the number one place in the pipeline where trials are held up.  CBI’s 3rd Annual event is driven by intensive research with clinical leaders at pharmaceutical and biotech companies who have helped us clearly identify the most critical technologies, strategies and processes needed to improve awareness, recruitment and retention.  This focused event provides a unique opportunity to drill down into the specifics that truly impact your job, gives benchmarks and solutions from the industry’s best and creates an excellent platform for networking.
