Quintiles, a provider of biopharmaceutical development and commercial outsourcing services, has received further recognition for the company’s digital communications with two “Internet Advertising Competition” (IAC) awards: one for its corporate website, Quintiles.com, and one for its patient education site, ClinicalResearch.com.

The updated design, along with new functionality to personalize the user experience, enables visitors to search, store and share information and thought-leading solutions quickly and easily.
