A Look at the 2014 OpenClinica Conference Program – An Ecosystem of Innovation

The program for OC14 (the 2014 OpenClinica Global Conference) has been posted–what a line-up! Having been involved in each of the past 5 OC conferences, I can say that this one has a lot new and useful things to offer.  Many in the OpenClinica community are not aware of all the useful innovations produced by our community scattered throughout the globe. The theme of the conference is “An Ecosystem of Innovation,” and OC14 will help to communicate a number of the innovations available to you and show you how you can take advantage of them for your own work.

OC14 is a unique opportunity to enhance your capabilities and skills with OpenClinica in an information-packed 2 days, June 22-23 in Boston. Early bird deadline registration is May 2nd.
