CRO WCCT Global has completed a specialized clinical research unit for vaccine clinical trials.
The facility was designed to provide biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies with the freedom they need to safely test their vaccines under development in a secure facility. The new unit includes 30 individual private rooms, separate dedicated units for vaccine and virus storage and separate HVAC systems for controlled ventilation.
WCCT Global, which has conducted research for more than 30 years, set up a streamlined process to use the company’s recruitment tools to quickly and efficiently recruit qualified volunteers for vaccine clinical research. The company said it knew the facility would need to be in a patient-rich community such as southern California to allow for easy access to study volunteers.
WCCT Global owns and operates five clinical sites headquartered in southern California.
