Meanwhile, the demand for new treatments place ever more pressure on the industry to succeed.

Decentralized Clinical Trials: Imperative for Pharma Sector to fight COVID19

Article | April 3, 2020

These are unprecedented times. The world is mobbed by a contagion virus, putting people’s health at risk, threatening to destabilize economies.
