With a global presence and deep experience, we adapt to your needs. Our teams can manage their own projects, and writers can work directly with customer teams, saving valuable time. Quality review services, which include editing and source data verification, are included with every document or can be provided as a standalone service. Teams support PPD’s full-service clinical trial offering, or they can work in a functional service provider (FSP) model as an extension of your internal workforce. Hourly rates are available for those times when you need maximum flexibility in achieving your clinical development goals.
