Quintiles Wins Society For Clinical Research Sites’ 2013 Eagle Award

Stocks in this article: Q

Quintiles today announced that the company has been awarded the Society for Clinical Research Sites’ (SCRS) 2013 Clinical Research Organization (CRO) Eagle Award. The award recognizes outstanding leadership, professionalism, integrity, passion and dedication and is voted on by the sites themselves.

“Quintiles recognizes the vital and important role our dedicated and highly skilled investigators and their site teams play in conducting clinical research aimed at developing new and better medicines,” said Lindy Jones, senior vice president, Integrated Site Services, Quintiles. “We are thrilled to receive the Eagle Award which recognizes that we understand and are dedicated to working closely with all of our investigative sites. We are especially pleased because we were chosen by the sites themselves.”

“We are delighted to present the Eagle Award to Quintiles,” said SCRS President Christine Pierre. The award reflects the opinions of more than 1,000 investigative sites across the globe. Quintiles’ integrity in consistently demonstrating their keen interest in partnering with sites landed them with this prestigious recognition.”

In selecting this year’s nominees, investigative sites registering for the Site Solutions Summit were asked to nominate the sponsor and CRO they believe best demonstrate partnership commitment. Criteria for selection included availability of qualified staff to support the sites, willingness to collaborate, protocol design and execution, financial consideration, and partnering with sites for future work. Finalists were those sponsors and CROs that ranked in the 75th percentile or greater of nominations received. Once the finalists were identified, voting was open to all sites globally.

Of the participating sites, 60% were from North America, 23% from Europe, 7% from South America, 3% from Asia-Pacific, 3% from Sub Saharan Africa, and 4% from “other.” Those who participated in the survey were mostly investigators (35%), site directors (31%), and study coordinators (21%).
