As incumbent president of Philippine Clinical Research Professionals, Inc. (PCRP), PiVOT General Manager Rodmar C. Pulido opened the 2020 PCRP General Assembly last January 24, at the Manila Doctors Hospital. In his welcome remarks, Mr. Pulido outlined the PCRP board’s recent achievements and upcoming initiatives.
One major achievement of the organization was its recognition as a stakeholder of critical government agencies, including the Department of Health, Philippine Food and Drugs Administration, Bureau of Quarantine, and Philippine Council for Health Research and Development.
PCRP also became a member of the Health Information Management Association of the Philippines (HIMAP) last year, which will bolster its efforts to bring the clinical research industry to the attention of the Board of Investments.
Among the initiatives presented were the Vaccine & Oncology Clinical Trial Initiatives, as well as the Nationwide Patient Awareness Campaign of Clinical Trials in the Philippines.
Elected in 2019, Mr. Pulido will serve as PCRP president until 2021.
