The 14th annual Summit for Clinical Operations Executives (SCOPE) will take place February 6–9, 2023, in Orlando, Florida. This year’s event is housed at the Rosen Shingle Creek, with online participation opportunities available, as well.
SCOPE 2023 at a Glance
Last year, SCOPE 2022 embraced more than 2,300 clinical operations and research professionals from around the globe. This year’s event is projected to be even bigger. SCOPE 2023 will feature:
- Twenty-eight conference panels on a variety of topics.
- The seventh annual Participant Engagement Awards.
- Four days of discussion, collaboration, and innovation.
- Three plenary keynote sessions from top minds in clinical operations.
- The second annual Masters of Clinical Research Golf Tournament.
Like last year’s event, SCOPE 2023 is expected to offer unparalleled networking opportunities for participants. In 2022, more than 60 percent of attendees held decision-making positions in key companies invested in clinical research. One in five came from the pharmaceutical industry, and even more (24 percent) hailed from biotechnology companies. Nearly one in three (32 percent) of last year’s attendees came from the world of clinical research organizations (CROs).
While many attendees are executives in their chosen fields, sales and marketing professionals, scientists, managers, and other industry participants will find colleagues at SCOPE 2023, as well. Each attendee brings a new perspective, which is essential for the innovation and collaboration clinical trial research currently demands.
Events to Watch
With 28 conference panels to choose from, the toughest part of attending SCOPE 2023 is deciding where to be at any given time. We’re especially excited about the following panel topics:
Improving Study Start-Up in Multi-Center and Decentralized Trials
In the afternoon on February 6, join several leading minds in clinical trials to discuss the challenges of integrating study start-up methods into multi-center and decentralized trial formats.
Topics will include integrating next-generation data sources to advance evidence generation and how to build a long-term roadmap for decentralized trials.
It Takes a Little Help from Friends: Pathways to Patient Engagement
The world of patient-centered healthcare demands better patient engagement and relationship-building. Fortunately, clinical trial organizers don’t have to build these relationships from scratch. SCOPE 2023 will include an in-depth discussion of the challenges and opportunities in patient engagement.
Highlights of this portion of the conference include a case study presented by Marlene Peters-Lawrence, clinical research project manager in the Division of Clinical Research at the National Institutes of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, and Tiffany Powell-Wiley, a physician scientist at the National Institutes of Health.
This case study will focus on how to engage diverse patient populations in clinical research.
Accelerating Clinical Trial Feasibility With Data Science
One particularly intriguing afternoon session features Corey Jones, senior manager of data visualization and design for Janssen R&D Data Science and Johnson & Johnson.
In this presentation, Jones will explore how data science and technology can help teams more quickly and effectively assess the feasibility of a clinical trial. Jones will focus on how clinical trial teams can move away from outdated software and approaches to embrace more efficient methods of data analysis.
