The MCC COVID-19 Knowledge Sharing Group was launched to provide MCC member organizations a platform to share information and to support each other in running clinical trials during the COVID-19 pandemic. MCC resources have been made available to assist in sharing knowledge – a web-based MCC COVID-19 Knowledge Portal which is being updated regularly, and a LinkedIn Group for ongoing questions and discussion.
Regular meetings have been discontinued at this time, as topics related to COVID-19 are being addressed in other MCC member groups.
