Clinical Trials Day

Clinical Trials Day 2024

We are pleased to announce and invite you to UCSF’s 2024 Clinical Trials Day celebration, hosted by the Clinical Trials Operations (CTO) team in collaboration with the Clinical Research Coordinators (CRCs) Council and the Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center (HDFCCC). The event will be held via Zoom, on Wednesday, May 22nd from 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM PT.

All UCSF CRCs / Clinical Research Support Staff are welcome to join us – Register here!

UCSF Clinical Trials Day is an annual celebration of the many contributions of CRCs to UCSF’s clinical research enterprise and loosely coincides with the world-wide commemoration of when James Lind started what is considered the first randomized clinical trial to treat scurvy aboard a ship on May 20th, 1747.

The program will include leadership welcome and remarks, sponsor breakout rooms staffed by many of the teams and departments that study teams interact with to answer your questions and let you put faces to names and network, and presentation of the CRC of the Year Award.

Raffle drawings will be held in sponsor breakout rooms, and please note you must register for the event in order to be eligible for the drawings, and you must be present to win.

CRC of the Year Award!
