Founder Michael J. Fox; CEO Todd Sherer, PhD; and Co-Founder and Executive Vice Chairman Deborah W. Brooks of The Michael J. Fox Foundation are featured on the cover of the inaugural issue of Clinical Researcher, the journal of the Association of Clinical Research Professionals.
The April 2014 cover story, authored by Sherer and other MJFF staff, is on engaging patient volunteers in clinical trials.
“Recruitment is one of the most costly and time-consuming aspects of testing compounds in humans. This, combined with the unique patient and research community constituents we work with, makes trial recruitment a prime opportunity for focus,” the authors write. “Although the learnings, examples and outcomes provided here are all specific to MJFF’s experience, many lessons are likely applicable to other organizations and diseases.”
