SDC Giving

Our culture at SDC emphasizes being positively engaged in our projects, but our efforts do not end there. SDC is committed to giving back and being a positive influence in our community. To highlight the charitable organizations and causes we support as a company, SDC has launched a new webpage called SDC Giving. Most recently, SDC supported Habitat for Humanity with a donation to cover the cost of building one house for a family in the Philippines.

The vision of Habitat for Humanity is "a world where everyone has a decent place to live." Responding to disasters since 1998, Habitat for Humanity has contributed it technical expertise in home building and sustainable shelter construction to serve more than 100,000 disaster-affected families worldwide.

Publication: The Clinical Data Management Process

Dale Usner, Ph.D., President of SDC, co-authored the article "The Clinical Data Management Process," which was published in the November/December 2014 issue of Retina Today. The article reviews the clinical data management (CDM) process in its entirety - from protocol review and CRF design through database lock. Describing the roles of various CDM team members and tips for efficient data management practices, "The Clinical Data Management Process" provides a comprehensive yet concise summary of this essential function in clinical trial research, specifically with respect to retina trials.
