Executive Steering Group

Why is the steering group so important?

The group comprises senior industry leaders, officials from the Department of Health and key healthcare professionals.

This group of professionals provides a vital role in helping PharmaTimes to design the competition so that its content accurately reflects the latest business thinking and the environment in which clinical researchers are working.

By including clinical researchers’ customers on the judging panel we are able to ensure that the PharmaTimes International Clinical Researcher of the Year competition both identifies those individuals and teams who understand the needs of the customer, and rewards the best clinical researchers in their field.
