Session 1: Keynote Address
T.J. Sharpe, PMP

The patient journey to and through a clinical trial may be much different in a clinic than intended in a protocol. Beyond inclusion criteria and schedule of events and the other documented necessities of setting up a trial, there are the unpredictable and immeasurable ripple effects of how, when, and where a clinical trial is available to the biggest trial stakeholders - the patients who look to participate. As a Stage IV melanoma survivor, two-time clinical trial participant, and patient advisor to the pharmaceutical and clinical research industries, T.J. Sharpe shares his story and how the hurdles he faced are representative of the difficulties many encounter as they try and find the right medicine for the right person at the right time.
