As Greg Trevelyan, Roche, winner of Team Leader of the Year 2014, says: "There is always room to develop and learn from others and the PharmaTimes International Clinical Researcher of the Year competition provides the ideal environment to facilitate this. The whole process is hugely rewarding and culminates in recognising top achievers in the industry."
“The competition combines a real career-development opportunity with a chance to hone both technical and presentation skills outside the normal workplace.
