Local Female Clinical Research Executive Receives Industry Distinction as an Innovator for Change

Winston-Salem, NC (PRWEB) April 11, 2013

Greater Gift Initiative, Inc., in conjunction with PMG Research, Inc., announced today that Jennifer Byrne, President and Founder of Greater Gift Initiative and President and CEO of PMG Research, has been recognized by CenterWatch as one of “20 Innovators Changing the Face of the Clinical Trials Industry.” CenterWatch, a leading source of data and information analysis on clinical trials, marks its twentieth anniversary this year and is honoring forward-thinking individuals within the industry who share a commitment of developing and implementing new approaches to re-shape the drug development process.

Among her contributions is her vision and resulting foundation of Greater Gift Initiative, whose mission is to advance global health and highlight the greater good of clinical trial participation by gifting a vaccine to a child in need in honor of each clinical trial volunteer. On behalf of PMG Research, the Greater Gift Initiative has donated 18,700 vaccines through partnerships with the GAVI Alliance and Rotary International’s End Polio Now campaign. The Greater Gift Initiative began under the PMG Research umbrella but is now a not-for-profit organization that expanded this year to include other research site networks.

Ms. Byrne, who would like to see vaccine donations an industry standard for honoring volunteers, is committed to elevating the role of the clinical trial process in support of this mission to advance global health and believes that “it’s important to reinforce that what we do really is meaningful and does make a difference”. Clinical trial participants are helping shape the healthcare of tomorrow by giving researchers the opportunity to gather information about the effectiveness of medications they’re trying to get to market. Without volunteers to participate in clinical trials, new medications cannot be developed and become available to the public. “PMG Research is extremely grateful for the willingness of thousands of volunteers that have trusted us over the past 34 years and have made such an enormous impact on the quality of life we enjoy every day. We’re applauding and recognizing our volunteers by passing on the good will to another person whose life may be saved by receiving the vaccination”, said Ms. Byrne. In essence, participating in a trial with PMG Research allows for an opportunity to help future generations in more than one way.

Greater Gift Initiative and GAVI Alliance have been selected as a finalist in the Best Vaccine Partnership / Alliance category for the 6th annual Vaccine Industry Excellence (ViE) Awards. PMG Research of Wilmington has been selected as a finalist in the Best Clinical Site & Trial Network category for its work with vaccine trials. Winners will be announced at the April 17th Awards Ceremony at World Vaccine Congress & Expo in Washington, DC.
