Episode 3 – Best Practices (and worst!) For Phase I Research Reports in Canada; May 2019

In this discussion, Brayden Ford and his expert guest, Bill Leedham, give you clear best practice advice for Phase I research reports. They cover not only best practices but some common (and costly) mistakes, lurking dangers, and the limitations placed on the fulfillment of this important first step.
