Distinguished Contributor Award for CRCs 2022
Congratulations to the nine Clinical Research Coordinators (CRCs) who received the Distinguished Contributor Award for CRCs for their dedication to the profession and outstanding contributions to Singapore’s research community.
Held on 11 January 2023, this is the third year the award has been presented since its launch in 2019, and there were 27 nominees received from public healthcare institutions.
Presented by the Singapore Clinical Research Institute (SCRI), the Distinguished Contributor Award recognises exceptional clinical research coordinators for their commitment, dedication and significant contributions to the profession and clinical research community.
CRCs are the backbone of Singapore’s clinical research community and are instrumental in not just driving clinical research but more importantly, ensuring the quality of the clinical research studies.
CRCs have the fundamental skills and knowledge to set up and manage complex clinical trials. With the right mix of talent and spirit of excellence, CRCs help bring science and innovation into our clinics and hospitals to achieve better outcomes for our patients.
The nine winners have demonstrated outstanding professional competence and leadership in various aspects of clinical research operations and administration, and displayed tremendous dedication to their job and passion for nurturing the junior CRCs in their team.
The SCRI Academy congratulates all recipients for making a difference to the clinical research community.
There are three categories for the Distinguished Contributor Award – Distinction, Merit, and Finalist.
One Distinction Award comprising a $3,000 cash award for professional development and an award certificate.
