International Clinical Researcher of the Year

Designed to challenge, recognise and reward the talent and passion of industry and academic researchers, the PharmaTimes International Clinical Researcher of the Year is a rigorous, real world competition that attracts entrants from all over the globe.

Comprising three-stages, the competition offers a unique opportunity for professionals working within the research fraternity to benchmark their skills against their peers in a learning environment, and have them judged by an independent executive steering group of high-level industry leaders.

The categories in this flagship competition have been designed to enable clinical researchers at all levels in their career to enter, develop and be rewarded for their efforts. A fantastic way to gain professional recognition from senior clinical operations leaders and key stakeholders, leading to career progression and development, all finalists receive qualitative and quantitative feedback from the judges together with a signed Certificate of Achievement.

The winners will be announced on 17 May at a gala dinner and awards ceremony in London.

The competition has three stages:

Stage 1: Multiple Choice Questionnaire (MCQ).
