We offer our clients a comprehensive range of services. Following is a selection of some of the many services we provide to our clients’ projects:

  • Clinical Trial Management – Selected and overseen by our Director of Clinical Operations, our Clinical Study Managers (CSM) serve as the main point of contact for our clients. Each of these individuals brings years of industry knowledge and experience to the client study team.
  • Field Monitoring/Clinical Research Associates - realizing that each study is unique and requires an individualized clinical monitoring plan, we use a hybrid approach of therapeutic alignment and regionally based Clinical Research Associates (CRAs) to build the best monitoring team for each study.
  • Clinical and Regulatory Staffing – We hire only experienced, seasoned monitors who are trained on the protocol, standard operating procedures, applicable FDA guidelines and Good Clinical Practice.

  • Protocol Development – Our highly esteemed Director of Clinical Development is active in all aspects of study trial protocol design, site and patient recruitment and sponsor communication.
  • Medical Monitoring – The medical monitor provides  support to sites by addressing Investigator questions regarding appropriate interpretation/application of the study protocol and advising regarding appropriate medical management of subject emergencies.

  • Biostatistics – Our nimble statistical team can be with the client during every step of the development process to make sure the biostatistical aspects of every study are the most efficient and robust possible.

We work with you to plan, prepare and complete all of your regulatory submissions and then act as your liaison in all interactions with regulatory agencies.
