We deliver excellence in design, management, and analysis for domestic and international clinical trials. We support drug, biologic, and device development for both commercial and government clients.

Clinical Trial Design

Our staff support all functions related to designing effective clinical trials and developing comprehensive protocols. Our biostatisticians can tailor statistical plans to the appropriate study phase and objectives, and our regulatory affairs staff help ensure study protocols are designed in compliance with applicable regulations and guidance for protecting human subjects. With an interdisciplinary team approach, we are flexible and responsive to clients’ evolving needs.

Westat’s project managers are experienced in all aspects of clinical trials management. They possess diverse specialties including previous data management and clinical trial monitoring experience, which informs our oversight of project activities. We use a horizontal management structure that enhances our flexibility so we can manage clients’ needs, ensure clients have quick access to decisionmakers, and empower our project managers to make effective management decisions.
