>>How the CTN can Benefit You

The ABC Clinical Trials Network (ABC CTN) provides investigators from multiple specialties with unparalleled access to clinical studies of interest while offering industry "one-stop" access to multiple investigators that ascribe to the same standard of clinical trial conduct.

Comprised of investigators from a variety of therapeutic areas, the ABC CTN was developed to serve as a central “wheel hub” of sorts to identify and vet clinical trial opportunities, match investigators to trials of interest, and provide some of the infrastructure support that we have heard physicians say they would find to be beneficial.

ABC believes this is a win-win for investigators to create or increase their flow of research studies while reducing some of the administrative burden and associated costs.

ABC Clinical Trials Network Benefits:

• Training
• Certification
• Contract and Budget Negotiation Services
• Patient Recruitment & Retention Support
• Access to Mentors in your Therapeutic Area of Interest
• Diversity Engagment Updates
