The Industry Roundtable brings together researchers from academic medical health centers, industry partners, and advocacy organizations to discuss and advance non-proprietary issues relating to drug and device development, evaluative and comparative effectiveness research, and the dissemination of knowledge about clinical research findings.
The purpose is to provide a forum to collaboratively identify, clarify and solve common challenges related to clinical research, as well as to foster a broader, consistent relationship and understanding where academia and industry interface.
