Joan Chambers, Vice President of ClinX and member of the executive steering group said:

“The Clinical Researcher of the Year—The Americas 2019 event is an outstanding opportunity for clinical research professionals within biopharma, CROs, sites and academic medical centers.  As part of the executive steering committee and a judge in this event for over five years, it is truly amazing to see so many professionals enter the competition and pursue the different phases with a goal of being invited to participate on the final day. There is a level of passion, dedication, camaraderie, and achievement you sense and see during the final day of the competition - followed by a beautiful and emotional awards dinner ceremony. This competition offers professionals the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and expertise while also further building their confidence.”

All of the finalists will be judged by experts within the industry who will be on hand to give back invaluable feedback – which adds an even greater incentive to get your entry in.

The process for entry firstly involves a 20-question multiple-choice questionnaire in which entrants must score at least 70% to progress. Competitors must then complete a 1000 word essay (1500 for team entries), and those entrants judged to have the best essays will be invited to the final stage of the competition. Individuals or teams who are entering the technology category should skip stage 1 and follow the technology category form. Finals day will take place alongside the MAGI conference in Boston, May 2019.
