2021 Portland Clinical Research Professional Virtual Conference


This conference will be presented entirely virtually through the GoToMeeting and GoToWebinar platforms.

DATE: May 5, 2021

TIME: 8.30AM TO 5:00PM 



NWABR, the Oregon Health and Sciences University, the Oregon Chapter of SOCRA and the Pacific Northwest Chapter of ACRP invite you to attend our second Clinical Research Professional Conference hosted from Portland OR.  This CRP conference is a key component of OHSU's Research Week.

This conference is designed for clinical research professionals who have the role of ensuring the ongoing integrity of research within their institutions.






Conference Program

Due to the SARS-CoV-2 virus response this conference will now be held virtually.  The full conference program is being developed and will be available below as the various keynote and breakout session presenters are confirmed.  All sessions will be recorded and links will also be shared to these recordings following the conference.  


As a result of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, this conference will be presented entirely virtually.  Registered attendees will be sent the final program a week prior to the event.  There will be a series of GoToWebinar and GoToMeeting links included in the program that will allow attendees to both see/hear presenters and also see the presenter’s slides.  Chat will be used to moderate questions for speakers for each of the live streams.  Attendees will be able to enable their cameras and microphones in the smaller breakout sessions so as to allow dialogue with presenters.

CE Credits

Once the program is finalized NWABR will be seeking the following CE credits:

  • CIP Recertification credits.
