Event description
GAP-Net Site Optimization Conference 2021 – Scottsdale, AZ

About this event

Registration is now open for our 5th Annual GAP-Net Site Optimization Conference, which will be held at The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch from September 22nd – September 24th, 2021! This will be an in-person event without a virtual option. We will stay up to date with Covid-19 travel restrictions over the next few months, but are hopeful to see you all in person this fall!

This conference is the only national gathering of academic and private Clinical Trial practitioners and is focused on site-to-site and site-to-sponsor communication and provides an overall platform for collaboration and networking. This is the best opportunity to meet the leading clinical trial sites across North America, global pharma sponsors, and many partners in AD clinical development. You will hear from world-class sites and partners on current development constraints, best practices, and engage in the future of clinical development!

The conference will kick-off with a dinner program on Wednesday evening, September 22nd followed by a two-day meeting, which will conclude the afternoon of Friday, September 24th. Registration will be open through Friday, September 17th.

Please find a "Schedule At-A-Glance – Subject to Change" below for a brief overview of our 2021 conference. We look forward to seeing you in Scottsdale this fall! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at stephenson@globalalzplatform.org and also copy my colleague, Taylor Disselhorst, at tdisselhorst@globalalzplatform.org as I will be on maternity leave through June 21st.
