2021-05-20T10:13:16-04:00

Part 1: Lack of Oversight Discussion of FDA inspections, whether for cause or part of a routine GCP inspection, usually centers on the inspection of trial sites and the CROs who are tasked with managing them.

5 Ways To Engage Clinical Trial Sites With Technology

2021-05-19T17:49:13-04:00

As Featured in Clinical Leader, July 13 2017 Clinical research has a reputation for being notoriously slow to adopt new technologies. This should come as no surprise to those in the industry, since we operate in a highly regulated environment. We’re generally skeptical about technology for three main reasons: Potential data security and compliance [...]
