Our Story

As the clinical trial industry has moved more towards precision based medicine, the process of conducting a trial for clinical study teams has become more and more complex. We are no longer in a state where trial endpoints are only looking at the pharmacokinetic and safety data. As pharmaceutical treatments and biologics that are being administered during a trial become more targeted, sponsors must show that the mechanism of action is understood and demonstrated. This means more lab vendors, more sample types, and more data.  As a result, traditional approaches in the functional areas of clinical operations, data management, vendor management, and several others have to adapt. Our founder has spent his entire career navigating this new reality in all sectors of the industry developing teams and process as a sponsor, within CROs, Labs, sites, and new industry technology. What became clear throughout this experience over the past decade can be summed up in our motto... 

Precision Based Medicine Requires Precision Based Solutions™.
