PPD, a global contract research organization, has launched Expert Community, an online, interactive area on its corporate website where company and other industry professionals can engage in an exchange of ideas and opinions regarding important clinical research topics and trends.
The online community presents concepts and insights from PPD leaders on timely topics such as patient safety, globalization, biologics in drug development and advanced technologies for managing clinical trials.
