Our goal is to select reliable, highly qualified partners to add value to your research and will complement internal knowledge with external expertise; at the same time these alliances will increase your operational efficiencies.

We have an extensive network of research centers that include a variety of different facilities throughout the country, including professional clinical research centers, Phase I units, hospitals, universities as well as specialized physicians’ offices.

The key opinion leaders (KOLs) we partner with are highly recognized, respected and prolific in their fields. In addition to contributing an in depth understanding of a given therapeutic area and indication, they also may share their clinical experience and advise on current trends in their area of expertise.
