May 2022

From the SCRS Team

Nobody can deny that clinical trial professionals quite literally changed the entire world for the better during the last 2 years. The sacrifices made by those of us in the profession (and our families that put up with us) were certainly challenging, but meeting challenges is what we do best. Clinical trial professionals continue to achieve the improving, saving, and extending of lives. Strangely enough, we are possibly the only people that can honestly say “if only I had spent more time at work”. This International Clinical Trials Day is our moment of unity to call upon the world to celebrate the gift of clinical trials and the professionals who make that gift a reality.

And on this day, we also do not forget about our clinical trial volunteers – those medical heroes who take on personal risks and burdens for the advancement of medicine in others. They also helped change the world in the past 2 years. From that hallmark randomized clinical trial for scurvy done 275 years ago on May 20 (for which International Clinical Trials Day was selected) to all the way to today, we call upon ourselves and the world to respect and celebrate these volunteers just as much, if not more, than they would celebrate us.

SCRS Membership Update

We all like to receive upgrades, right? Especially when it’s moving from business class to first class while flying, or being moved from a standard hotel room to a suite with a view. Well, SCRS is in the process of upgrading our website user experience just for you!

If you have recently visited myscrs.org, you may have already noticed a change in scenery as we reorganized the website menu.  For example, under the new Resources tab, you will find all our publications, the career center, member resource library, and more. Under Membership, we have a new tab for existing members with links to all your benefits in one easily-accessible place.

Individuals from the SCRS Membership Committee offered valuable input that has helped us make decisions in the process of tweaking our content and design. If you have any feedback you would like to share for our website content and navigation, please let us know.
