Dr Greg Koski wins PCT Lifetime Achievement Award 2017

At last year's Partnerships in Clinical Trials Europe meeting, Dr Greg Koski was awarded the PCT Lifetime Achievement Award 2017 in association with mdgroup.

Dr Koski is Chairman, Co-Founder and President/CEO of ACRES, the Alliance for Clinical Research Excellence and Safety, and Associate Professor of Anesthesia at Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School.

Presented by Andy Thurstan, Senior Director of Business Development at mdgroup, the prize rewards those who have made a major impact on the world of clinical trials over their career; those who have changed the direction the industry is moving in and left a legacy.

In his heartfelt acceptance speech, Dr Koski expressed a sense of prematurity about the award: 'What is yet to be achieved is enormous and can't be achieved alone, for there is much to be done. That leaves me with a sense of great sadness, for whilst we have our lives and the opportunity to do much more, that's not true for everyone.'
