Celerion, a leading clinical research organisation, is pleased to announce it has received a CRO Leadership Award for the fourth time by global biopharmaceutical executives in Life Science Leader’s annual CRO Leadership Awards for 2017.

Both large and small biopharmaceutical clients acknowledged Celerion as a CRO Leader in all five categories: Capabilities, Compatibility, Expertise, Quality and Reliability.

Celerion was distinguished amongst 72 of their peers in the annual Contract Research Quality Benchmarking online survey conducted by Industry Standard Research.

The survey queried the direct client experience across 27 different performance metrics spanning technical expertise to client service; results have been published in the May edition of Life Science Leader magazine.

Additionally, Individual Attribute Awards were developed in response to the intangible capabilities that were identified as critical to successful collaborations. Celerion was also recognised for achievement in Data Quality, Innovative Solutions and Operational Excellence.

Commenting on the news, Susan Thornton, President and CEO of Celerion, said: “We would like to thank our clients for this recognition and their continued partnership with Celerion. For more than 40 years, Celerion has been at the forefront of early clinical research.”

“Winning the CRO Leadership award highlights the value we consistently deliver to our clients. Our extensive experience and expertise in managing complex early phase studies in healthy volunteers and patients enables us to provide unique insights for successful clinical development programmes.”
