2016-2017 SCT President, Domenic J. Reda, PhD

Welcome! The Society for Clinical Trials (SCT) is an educational, charitable, and scientific organization whose mission is to work internationally to advance human health through advocating the use of clinical trials, leading the development and dissemination of optimal methods and practices in clinical trials, and educating and developing all clinical trial professionals. We are a society with representation from academia, industry, government and non-profit research and advocacy groups. Our community consists of clinical investigators, biostatisticians, project managers, IT specialists, clinical research associates and people from other clinical trials specialties. Our membership spans the globe with representation from 24 different countries. Our recent annual meeting in Montreal, Canada (May 15-18, 2016) was a big success and I look forward to seeing you at our 2017 meeting, which will be jointly sponsored by the MRC Hub Network and will be held in Liverpool, United Kingdom, May 7-10, 2017.
