IND Executive -- New Investigator Engagement Pilot Project

In an effort to foster newer investigator interest and participation in early clinical trials, the Investigational New Drug (IND) Program will be piloting a one-year membership on the IND Executive Committee.

A request for nominations was sent out to IND Centre Representatives in early April; nominees had to be newer faculty (within 3-5 years of first appointment).

The successful candidates were Dr. Sara Kristina Taylor (BCCA - Cancer Centre for the Southern Interior) and Dr. Jose Monzon (Tom Baker Cancer Centre). They will have the opportunity to attend all Executive calls and meetings, as well as be involved in protocol writing and trial development.

If successful, we hope to continue this initiative in future years.
