CenterWatch launches virtual news hub for clinical research professionals

BOSTON—Mar. 8, 2011—CenterWatch, a leading publisher of clinical trials information, announced today that it has launched its next generation virtual news site, CenterWatch News Online. This dynamic, easy-to-navigate, real-time online service features objective news reports covering timely stories and emerging trends in the global clinical research industry.

CenterWatch News Online editors will be covering breaking news about public and private companies making this new service the first of its kind to comprehensively cover a highly fragmented industry containing a large proportion of privately-held and relatively small organizations. Breaking news beats include the study conduct industry, contract services industry and the technology solutions industry. CenterWatch News Online will also feature an "Awards and Advancement" section covering new contract award announcements and personnel changes. The virtual newsletter's "Clinical Intelligence" section will report on newly initiated clinical trial activity, experimental treatment results by research phase and FDA actions. The home page will also include a rotating "Featured Chart" sourced from original CenterWatch data.

"Our goal is to provide the highest quality and most relevant editorial and analytical news content to busy professionals," says Joan Chambers, chief operating officer of CenterWatch. "News Online is a natural extension of our portfolio of editorial services that includes in-depth business analysis in The CenterWatch Monthly, and journalistic coverage of major news developments in CWWeekly."

CenterWatch News Online builds on its predecessor Clinical Trials Today, a web-based listing of content drawn from the company's weekly and monthly coverage. Visit CenterWatch News Online at
