ACRO Celebrates 20 Years

ACRO Celebrates 20 Years!

20 years ago, contract research organizations were still relatively new players within the clinical research enterprise, and the place of clinical trial technology providers was in its infancy. Today, CROs and technology companies are key participants in drug development and leaders in the digital transformation of clinical trials.

On March 16, 2022, ACRO kicked off its 20th anniversary with a celebration in Washington, DC, gathering member companies, regulators, thought leaders, and other industry stakeholders. A highlight of the event was hearing from industry leaders through three discussion panels. More details about each of these discussion panels are available below and we invite you to watch and share with colleagues.
