Office of Clinical Research Development Forum


Amy Doville, Director of Clinical Operations, IDeA States Pediatric Clinical Trials Network (ISPCTN), will present “Risk Assessment and Management in Clinical Trials” at the March Clinical Research Forum on March 10, 2020 at 11:30 in the Coleman South Auditorium.

Ms. Doville will share her expertise and provide insights for scientific rigor, project management, and ongoing monitoring as key aspects of conducting clinical research. Equally important but often not considered are the risks that could derail a study; therefore, she will address the essential steps of risk assessment, mitigation, and management to ensure quality clinical trials and the protection of research participants.

Amy has over 30 years of experience in research, including clinical research, consumer testing/marketing research, and laboratory research. She began her research career as a lab tech at the University of Tennessee Center for Health Sciences. She later developed a Product Evaluation program at the former Schering Plough Healthcare Products (now Merck). Amy spent 17 years at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, where she served in several roles, including Director of Clinical Research Education and Director of the Central Protocol and Data Monitoring Office. Amy is currently the Director of Clinical Operations at the Data Coordinating and Operations Center for the IDeA States Pediatric Clinical Trials Network at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock, where she has been for two years.
