Are you interested in partnering with industry on a clinical trial, but are unsure of where to start? Have you been hesitant to pursue an industry trial because you’re not sure who can help at U-M or whether this is a good use of your time? Would you like to learn more about how to effectively interact with sponsors?

Register now for the two-part series, Working with Industry.

Featuring an expert panel discussion on partnering with industry sponsors, you’ll learn more about the ins-and-outs of industry-sponsored trials at the U-M, including how the teams in the Clinical Trials Support Office and Fast Forward Medical Innovation can help.

It will take place from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 16 at the Taubman Health Sciences Library, Room 2901.
