Clinical research is complicated. At WCG, we frequently get questions about the ethical conduct of research from clinical team members at biopharma companies and study sites. We know that for many of the questions we get, the person asking is not the only one struggling with that issue. Read the questions your peers are asking – and if you don’t see yours, submit one of your own.
Small and emerging biopharma companies are conducting almost 50% of the clinical trials in the United States today. Unlike “big pharma”, small companies are usually working with lean teams, limited resources, and minimal infrastructure. In this paper, we explore some of the unique challenges for clinical development teams, and solutions that can reduce the pressure on teams and timelines.
New research on how people make decisions about research participation, and new approaches to the question of payments and compensation to participants, bring a new perspective; are payments to participants actually too low? This paper explores this question, and whether we should, in fact, worry much less about restricting compensation for research participants.
Approximately 20% of cancer clinical trials will never be completed, because they fail to enroll enough participants to be able to answer the research question. Read this white paper to learn the impact that participant payments may play on clinical trial recruitment.

How can researchers identify participants’ overall level of suggestibility and then focus on the minimization of this characteristic to solve the issue of suggestibility in clinical trial?
Genetic testing is making it easier to identify patients for clinical trials. However, genetic testing in the context of clinical trials raises raise important ethical issues, including ones related to informed consent and disclosure of results. Genetic counselors can play a crucial role in helping sponsors address these operational and ethical issues, making trials more efficient, more patient-centered and, ultimately, more successful.
