Forging Strong Sponsor-CRO Relationships: Join Us at OCT New England

DURHAM, N.C., SEPTEMBER 5, 2017 — Sponsors and CROs can forge stronger relationships by pursuing long-term partnerships that value collaboration over transactions. Premier Research’s top neuroscientist will discuss how when she hosts a session at Outsourcing Clinical Trials New England in Boston.
