Within the last decade, funding for clinical research has dramatically shifted towards industry. Now, over 75% of funding is provided by industry sponsors. How can investigators stand out and catch industry’s attention to lead a trial? Once an investigator is selected, what are the next steps to successfully launch and manage an industry-sponsored, multi-site trial in collaboration with the Clinical Trials Support Office?

Join us February 11, for “Leading the Charge,” part of the Clinical Trials Research Spotlight Series, as we answer common industry-sponsored trial questions and talk with Steven Pipe, MD to learn how he maximized the resources within the Clinical Trials Support Office to successfully set up Michigan Medicine as the lead dosing site for gene therapy through his BioMarin Hemophilia A trial. We’ll also be joined by Nick Harris, CCRC, Clinical Research Project Manager – Children’s CTSU, who worked closely with Dr. Pipe’s team to implement not one, but three industry-sponsored trials here at Michigan Medicine.

Mike Ranella, MBA, MPH, Business Development Associate Director – Fast Forward Medical Innovation, will be moderating this exciting panel discussion. Due to his expertise in working with industry, Mike will also be sharing tips, tricks, and best practices for Principal Investigators looking to start a trial with industry.
