Hanover, MD, April 25, 2022 – Today the Society for Clinical Research Sites (SCRS) announced that Sanofi has made a commitment to become a funding sponsor of the SCRS Diversity Awareness Program. The program is aimed at developing a better understanding of the knowledge, expertise and best practices required for clinical research sites to meet the needs of an increasingly diverse population. Since its inception in 2017, the program has provided critical knowledge and solutions to aid sites in successfully engaging diverse patients in clinical trials.
“Sanofi is committed to enrolling patients in clinical trials who are representative of the people our medicines are intended to help. To help improve on diversity in clinical trials, we are implementing a number of steps, including the way we design our studies, the sites we recruit from, how we train investigators in referring patients for clinical trials, and engagement with community stakeholders. As such we are pleased to be a funding sponsor of the SCRS diversity awareness program,” commented Dietmar Berger, Chief Medical Officer, Global Head of Development at Sanofi.
“Sanofi has been involved with SCRS for many years and has always prioritized the perspective of clinical research sites and patients,” said Diana Foster, SCRS VP of Strategy and Special Projects. “SCRS is privileged to have Sanofi included in supporting the SCRS Diversity Program and we look forward to our continued collaboration towards this vital initiative.”
