Welcome Message from 2022-23 SCT President

Welcome to the Society for Clinical Trials (SCT). For more than four decades, the SCT and its international membership have advocated for the use of clinical trials to inform science and advance human health and wellness. Together, we continue to lead the development and dissemination of optimal methods and practices in clinical trials, while attracting and training the best and brightest minds in this discipline.


Our collective mission to advance the theory and practice of clinical trials is underpinned by four strategic objectives, which set out a clear direction of travel for the SCT:

  • Champion optimal clinical trial practice, emphasizing design, organization, operations, analysis and reporting;
  • Serve as a reliable resource for guidance on methodology and continuing education and training of medical professionals;
  • Advocate for the inclusion of methodologic research in the design, organization, operations, analysis and reporting of clinical trials; and
  • Promote the importance of clinical trials for the evaluation of interventions intended to advance and improve human health and wellness.
