"It has given me very close one-on-one time with a lot of people that I definitely would not have otherwise met."

Anita A. Kelkar

Grant recipient, 2014

“CVCT was one of the most unique conferences I have attended. It was a combination of investigators, young researchers and regulators in a very interactive setting. I had the opportunity to not only hear interesting talks and interact with senior trialists, but I also had the chance to interact with other young investigators from around the world. The meeting with diverse but intimate enough to remain engaged and allow me to easily interact with many leaders of the field. I definitely encourage others to attend the CVCT meeting.”
