The Clinical Trial Liaison (CTL) will develop relationships with clinical trial investigators and research site staff to facilitate recruitment of subjects in pharmaceutical industry clinical trials for which PRA serves as the contract research organization (CRO). The CTL will work in concert with PRA’s clinical research associates (CRAs) to ensure that investigators and site staff have a thorough understanding of the investigational agents being used in the study, the trial’s eligibility criteria, and all study procedures. Particular attention will be given to assessing the effectiveness of each site’s strategy used to identify potentially eligible subjects. The CTL must also understand how the trial fits into the site’s pattern of treatment for the condition and how any competing clinical trials or upcoming drug approvals may affect the progress of recruitment. Repeated interactions will be needed over the course of the trial to ensure that the trial remains “top of mind” with investigators and staff. The CTL will function as part of the study team and will interact frequently with sponsor companies and their field personnel. Furthermore, the CTL will serve as liaison with key investigators to help ensure that they receive prompt assistance with any queries and that any concerns they have are promptly transmitted to the trial’s sponsor.
