Synteract Hosting CDISC Training Classes in Southern California and North Carolina on Regulatory Data Standards

San Diego CRO provides location for healthcare, medical research and biotech data standards training

SAN DIEGO – Jan. 22, 2015 – Synteract, a full-service, international contract research organization (CRO), will be hosting limited-registration training classes for CDISC, a global, nonprofit organization that has established standards to support the acquisition, exchange, submission and archiving of clinical research data. The classes will be held Jan. 27-30 at Synteract’s global headquarters in Carlsbad, Calif.

CDISC collaborates with CROs, including Synteract, to develop uniform data standards for clinical trials. Synteract has provided feedback and industry expertise to the organization throughout this process as well as assistance with creating uniform data sets that meet the needs of CROs. In turn, Synteract uses its knowledge of regulatory requirements and standards to guide biopharma clients.

The training classes will be conducted by CDISC teachers and will cover all CDISC standards. The training is appropriate for data management and biostatistics professionals in biotech and pharma companies. A class list and registration dates are available on CDISC’s website. Synteract will also make CDISC classes available Feb. 10-13 at its North Carolina office in Research Triangle Park.

“Synteract is pleased to once again have the opportunity to participate in improving the quality, efficiency and cost effectiveness of clinical research processes through CDISC’s platform-independent data standards,” said Olivia Montaño, senior director, clinical data management at Synteract. “We provide these training sessions to stay at the top of our industry in data management, which helps us direct our clients through the drug development process with accurate data collection from start to finish.”

Synteract is also hosting a one day implementation course on CDASH, which describes basic data collection fields common to all therapeutic areas and all types of clinical research. CDISC standards are vendor-neutral, platform-independent and freely available via the CDISC website.
