About GPP We are a volunteer organization focused on developing and documenting Good Programming Practice for Clinical Research, working with regulatory agencies, the standards institutes, and professional associations within the BioPharma Industry. The aim is to encourage contributions from across companies, non-profit organizations and regulators in an attempt to create a consensus recommendation. The ambition is that this work becomes recognized by the BioPharma Industry as well as Regulatory Authorities. Our objective is to facilitate sharing of best practice for programmers in clinical research. We intend to develop publicly available guidance that addresses all relevant aspects of programming. We have recently begun to engage the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, professional associations, and pharmaceutical companies in our draft work to ensure we have the appropriate level of buy-in from regulators. As a Board member you will be actively contributing and will have specific areas of responsibility.
