  • What does training look like?
  • What do remote trials look like?
  • What is the impact on recruitment?
  • What is the role of CTSA Program in clinical research post-COVID?
  • New uses of technology in research?

Other topics to be defined, because, like all of Un-Meetings, the attendees make the agenda!  To keep conversations meaningful, attendance will be limited, so register soon, we are filling up fast! We look forward to seeing you in the ether!
