About the Society

A Message from 2016-2017 SCT President, Domenic J. Reda, PhD

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. We are also sponsoring the SCT-QSPI workshop, November 14-15, 2016 in Shady Grove, MD. This workshop will bring together statisticians from industry, FDA and academia. Watch this website for forthcoming information about the program and registration.

Your membership in the SCT provides many benefits, including a subscription to the SCT journal Clinical Trials, access to our popular webinar series, and our online membership directory.

This year we are planning new ways to communicate with our membership and the larger clinical trials community. We are revamping our newsletter, exploring how social media can get our message out, and planning other exciting changes in our communications. We are also expanding our education outreach. If you would like to be involved in these efforts or other Society activities, feel free to contact me.
