Publication Date Sep 1, 2022

Abstract

There is little to no empirical data on the race and ethnicity of the global community of professionals conducting clinical trials funded by pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies and little empirical evidence on the relationship between the race and ethnicity of investigative site personnel and the overall and corresponding diversity of participants enrolled. A global online survey conducted in mid-2021 gathered responses from 3462 clinical research professionals representing approximately 3300 distinct investigative sites.

As the mix of site personnel by race and ethnicity increases, the diversity of patients enrolled-except for Asian patients in sites outside of North America-also increases. A significant relationship was also found between the proportion of a given race or ethnicity of investigative site personnel and the corresponding race and ethnicity of patients enrolled. An opportun...
