Simplified vendor management

Our project managers are experienced in testing and developing working relationships with complementary service providers. They will manage your vendor assessments, contract negotiations, implementation, oversight and coordination to supplement study activities as needed, from IRBs to supply chain.

No other clinical development services provider has a more intimate understanding of patients affected by kidney disease and its comorbid conditions than we do.
