Almac’s Clinical Trial Workshop Series to return in 2012

Almac will be hosting a series of complimentary ‘lunch and learn’ style workshops across Europe and the US this spring tailored towards clinical trial / outsourcing professionals from Pharmaceutical and Biotech companies. The content of the workshops, which are titled ‘“Blinding Techniques and Analytical Support for Clinical Trials” will provide an informative and educational insight into the challenges involved in Phase I-III trial encapsulation, blinding, packaging, and labeling as well as the associated analytical considerations in this area. Robert Dunlop, Managing Director at Almac commented: “The workshops are designed to promote learning and encourage dialogue amongst members of the clinical trial profession. Attendees can share experiences, discuss common challenges, and ultimately take away with them methods for overall success in clinical trials.“ As with previous workshops delivered by Almac, the content demonstrates how the integrated service offerings from the Almac Group deliver a more streamlined supply chain network in an industry wherein time and resources are limited.
