Event Overview

Contract research organization (CRO) services are continuing to grow at an immense pace, driven in part by rapidly evolving technologies used in drug discovery and development. According to market research, the CRO services sector is forecast to be worth $127.3 billion by 2028, representing a double digit (10.7%) compound annual growth rate (1).

As the bio/pharma industry gravitates towards more complex clinical pipelines, outsourcing has been a necessity for many as it can control costs/minimize internal staff and resources, for example, in addition to getting products out in the most efficient way (1,2). An area that is not highlighted as much in industry commentary is the early phase development of outsourcing and what needs to be improved to remain in line with the fast pace of change happening within this industry.

In this Drug Digest video, Chris Moreton, FinnBrit Consulting, will provide expert insights into what happens in early phase development and highlight the benefits and challenges of this step in the outsourcing process.
