Evening Regional Meeeting by PIPMG - the Pharmaceutical Indiustry Project Management Group.
What is the Project Manager's role in the changing balance between the Pharma's need to outsource, their need to retain sponsorship & oversight, and the CROs' fast-gaining capabilities to manage many aspects of development? Join us to hear from two experienced speakers:
- The CRO perspective – Alexandra Adams, Director, Late Phase, EU, Chiltern
- The Pharma perspective - David Davies recently Futura Medical

28 May - The origin of modern humans, with:
- Chris Stringer, Research Leader in Human Origins, Natural History Museum
- Bruce Bradley, Professor of Experimental Archaeology, University of Exeter
Understanding the evolution of modern humans is one of science's most intriguing projects. And recently, the picture it gives has changed dramatically. The unexpected discovery of a new species of early human plus genetic tests on our other ancient ancestors has dramatically changed the way we view the ascent of humans. Moreover, we are gaining better understanding of their brains and mental abilities from a surprising source - the tools they made.
The Institute of Clinical Research is running a Chairman's Forum on oncology next week in High Wycombe.
