    “It’s different. I’ve never seen anything close to the content I’ve seen today and it gave me lots of new ideas. It’s a very nice collaborative setting.”

    David V. Sheehan MD MBA, Distinguished University Health Professor Emeritus, University of South Florida College of Medicine

    “What I like is that it’s a pre-competitive space where we can come in and talk about issues that a lot of people don’t want to talk about. What’s going wrong with the trials and how can we do better. “There’s not a lot of fluff. People who really care are at the CNS Summit.”
