Welcome to the Society for Clinical Trials

A Message from 2015-2016 SCT President, Wendy Parulekar, MD

2015-2016 SCT President, Wendy Parulekar, MD

Welcome to the Society for Clinical Trials (SCT) an international and multidisciplinary society of individuals who share a passion and commitment to advancing the methodology and conduct of clinical trials. The function of the Society as a forum to discuss and debate the role of clinical trials in the research enterprise has never been more important as we are faced with the challenges of designing efficient trials to address the most compelling clinical questions in a research environment characterized by limited resources and information overload. Implicit in the mandate of designing efficient trials is the need to demonstrate the value or usefulness of randomized clinical trials to the consumers of this research. It is not enough to state that randomized clinical trials represent the highest level of evidence to guide decision making - we need to demonstrate that this type of research matters. Your membership in the SCT provides an excellent opportunity to voice your opinions on these issues and others. read more »
