CONNECTING TOGETHER AND BUILDING ON OUR SUCCESS

In response to suggestions made during the spring’s 2016 IBTN Conference, we are happy to announce the launch of the online IBTN Community site. Join and connect with our community of researchers, experts, students, and practitioners in the field of behavioral trial design.  Solicit advice, share news and content, and partake in stimulating discussion pertaining to the field of behavioural trials. Help our community enhance the quality of design and research.

This “members only” site is offered at no charge and only takes moments to set up. Create a researcher profile, share details about your areas of expertise, and search for and message other members of the IBTN Community.
