Association of Clinical Research Organizations
As the trade association that represents the organizations that manage the clinical trial process, the onset of COVID-19 put the Association of Clinical Research Organizations (ACRO) in a spot it rarely finds itself, the spotlight. Almost overnight, an industry that usually leaves most of the news making to its customers, found itself in a unique spot to be both a convener of industry leaders and a clearinghouse of information.
ACRO asked Beekeeper Group’s skilled technical team to assist in standing up a COVID-19 resource platform on its website. In order to serve their members, they needed to be the go-to source for the following types of information:
- Rapid-fire guidance from regulators all over the world dealing with compressed timelines for clinical trials for treatments and vaccines.
- Industry recommendations on how to support and monitor clinical trials during COVID-19
- Updates and information from their member companies, especially news on accelerating availability of tests, collaborations on clinical trials, and other groundbreaking work happening at the member company level
ACRO staff worked tirelessly to create recommendations, monitor global regulators, and gather newsworthy content from their member companies. Beekeeper Group was proud to assist them by quickly developing a web platform and related communications to promote all of the lifesaving work underway at its member companies to safely accelerate testing, remedies, and vaccines for COVID-19.
