In the words of Gillian Gittens, Director of eClinical Strategy and Solutions at TransPerfect Life Sciences, “TMF Champions need to be empowered to promote the importance of the TMF and inspection readiness within an organization. They are responsible for maintaining the TMF throughout the clinical trial and are critical to the success of the trial.”
In addition to their primary responsibilities, TMF Champions can also assist with developing procedures and guidelines, training team members, and coordinating with external parties, such as contract research organizations (CROs), to ensure compliance. The hallmark of these individuals is their commitment to quality. Their passion and dedication to maintaining the quality of TMFs within the trials are pivotal to achieving success.
