To determine the recipients of these annual awards, Life Science Leader and Clinical Leader collaborate with Industry Standard Research (ISR) to assess 60 CROs on over 20 performance metrics. Recruited from pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies of various sizes, the survey participants only evaluated those companies with which they had worked on an outsourced project within the past 18 months. "Industry Standard Research (ISR) stringent screening processes [ensure] that only highly qualified industry decision-makers participate in our CRO benchmarking market research. This is paramount as we ask the research participants to provide experiential, not perceptual, feedback on their involvement with contract suppliers over the past 18 months," says Kevin Olson, CEO of ISR.
"Selecting the right CRO can make or break your project, says Ed Miseta, chief editor of Clinical Leader. These award winners have proven themselves to be the top service providers in each category. I congratulate all of them [for the work ethic] they exhibit in consistently meeting the needs of their drug development clients."

We are delighted that our team members are being recognized for their hard work" said Chien.
