It’s the third and final day of the Onsemble 2014 Spring Conference, which is co-hosted by the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University. Today’s agenda features breakout sessions that focus on functionality in the OnCore® Enterprise Research system. The topics include biospecimen management, EDC, and more.
