Santos-Serrao will give a presentation called "TMF Management: Beyond Document Management" on day one of the main conference on Wednesday, Jan. 18, 2017 at the Loews Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Studios in Orlando.

A Trial Master File is a system that is not only required by regulatory authorities, but also provides the ability to achieve critical oversight during a clinical trial, enables appropriate documentation and demonstrates compliance to good clinical practices. In this educational session, Santos-Serrao will discuss how TMF management includes, but is not limited to, document management. She will also share valuable tips on configuring an enterprise document management system (EDMS) and how to manage TMF artifacts and metadata regardless of whether the system is set up in a paper or electronic format.
