Early Development Global Capabilities
The partner you select for your early phase studies is critical in helping you achieve your overall development timeline efficiently and within budget. You need a CRO that has an established network of carefully selected sites centered around quality, medical safety and unparalleled expertise.
We understand the importance of selecting the right sites when executing Phase I studies, that is why each of our global facilities undergo a rigorous selection process including GCP audits and/or pre-selection assessment visits. We have executed master clinical service agreements or agreed to contract language with all our sites.
