Innovative research requires an ingenious mediation of patient and program needs. Worldwide excels in the essentials while taking a vanguard approach to the latest in preclinical science and study design.
Many of our oncology team members have spent time conducting research or clinical care themselves, giving them an edge in overcoming the operational and patient-centered challenges that often plague trials conducted in this space. From preclinical and dose escalation expertise to regulatory approval, we are just the right size to offer accessible, nimble attention and a bevy of the industry’s top talent. That’s why Worldwide is rated a top performer for staff, delivery, budget and loyalty across phase I-III CRO services by Industry Standard Research.
