How An SMO Works, A Behind The Scenes Interview

Share Button


Today we were luck enough to interview Celina R Chavannes, CEO and founder of Toronto-based SMO, Resolve Research Solutions. An SMO, also known as a Site Management Organization, is a centrally managed network of research clinics which are able to leverage their own study budgets across all research clinics, while also centralizing regulatory documents and trainings as well as other components of research. Celina goes into great detail, and provides excellent behind the scenes examples of how her SMO functions. We thank Celina for being a producer of this show, for being such a great guest, and for being so candid with us.
