PPD has been named the best contract research organization by Scrip Intelligence, which also has honored PPD for deploying the best technological development in clinical trials.
Scrip presented both awards to PPD at the seventh annual Scrip Awards ceremony in London. PPD was recognized for its expertise and innovation in helping clients develop life-changing medical treatments. The judging panel called PPD "a great organization - open for new approaches, even more for driving new technologies."
Scrip also recognized PPD's innovative technology solution, created in collaboration with Microsoft Corp., that improves the efficiency of managing Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) programs mandated by the FDA. Designed to improve patient safety, REMS programs help ensure the safe distribution and administration of certain marketed drugs.
