Canadian Cancer Trials Group Founder's Award: Dr. Joseph Pater Excellence in Clinical Trials Research Award
The Founder's Award is presented annually to an investigator whose leadership and body of work has contributed to significant advances in the understanding, diagnosis, treatment, cure, and prevention of cancer. This award honours an Investigator whose excellence in clinical trials research has provided techniques, information or concepts that will direct the future of the oncology research community and the Canadian Cancer Trials Group.
Additionally, Central Office will be awarding two team awards this year:
Phase III and IND Program Team Awards
Metrics regarding trial specific accrual both overall and for 2013, local activation timelines, and also compliance metrics are compiled by Central Office. This information will be reviewed by the IND Executive for the IND Trial Team Awards and by the Clinical Trials Committee (CTC) for Phase III Trial Team Awards. Individual Trial Teams from member centres will be acknowledged for their efforts and dedication to the success of clinical trials. No external nomination process.
These awards, acknowledging the hard work of our Investigators, CRAs, and Pharmacists (e.g. fastest activating site, most accrual, fastest data submission while still remaining compliant, and so on), will be presented during Friday afternoon's Plenary Session at Spring Meeting.
