Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 28, 2009 -- ClearTrial (www.cleartrial.com), a leading provider of clinical trial software for clinical trial operations planning, budgeting, and outsourcing, announced today that Kristin Lucas, ClearTrial Senior Director of Clinical Services, will lead a panel of top pharmaceutical financial experts in discussing "Methodologies for Managing Cash Flow and Accruals" at the CBI Forecasting & Budgeting conference. Held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Philadelphia, February 3-4, 2009, the conference will bring together senior biopharma executives in clinical operations and finance to share best practices.

With the complexity of clinical trials increasing, managing cash flow and accruals presents significant challenges to clinical operations and financial professionals at biopharma companies.

  • Obtaining accurate assessments of accruals based on actual work performed
  • Tracking contract performance and timelines
  • Accurately forecasting and managing one-time start-up fees
  • Effectively managing clinical cash flow

Lucas brings more than 15 years of experience in the pharmaceutical and biotech industry to the conference, with extensive experience in clinical trial budgeting and contract management. Before joining ClearTrial, she led the Financial Administration division for the Clinical Business Management department at ICOS Corporation (an Eli Lilly company), where she worked on the blockbuster drug Cialis®. At ICOS, Lucas was responsible for establishing best practices in the outsourcing, management, drafting and negotiation of site and vendor agreements, as well as the development of a clinical budgeting/modeling application for lifecycle planning, budgeting and in-licensing opportunity assessment. Prior to ICOS, Lucas spent seven years with Genentech, where she was responsible for the negotiation, positioning, and pricing strategy for managed care contracts.
