Welcome to the Society for Clinical Trials

A Message from 2018-2019 SCT President, Sumithra Mandrekar, PhD

2018-2019 SCT President, Sumithra Mandrekar, PhD

It is my distinct pleasure and honor to serve as president of this prestigious society. SCT is a unique multidisciplinary society with membership spanning multiple disciplines that are all critical to the field of clinical trials: biostatistics, Clinical areas, IT and systems, data management, regulatory bodies, protocol management, patient advocates, health outcomes researchers, and many others. Our members come from academia, industry, government and non-profit research and advocacy groups. Personally, I have benefitted greatly from being an active member of this society and participating in the annual meetings. I am deeply honored to serve as your president this upcoming year.

The Society for Clinical Trials is a scientific, educational, and charitable 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 clinical trial professionals. We accomplish this mission through our annual scientific meeting, which includes invited and contributed sessions, poster presentations, and educational short courses and workshops; our highly regarded journal Clinical Trials; our ongoing webinar series; and our many outreach activities. Thank you to each of you who participate in the society's activities and present in our annual meeting - this is a great educational opportunity for all of us engaged in clinical trials conduct and research.
