Wide-ranging suite of services and solutions support the unique needs of early phase research
(Columbia, MD.) – Advarra, the premier provider of independent review committees, quality and compliance consulting services, and research technology solutions, announced today the launch of its Early Phase Center of Excellence, a dedicated suite of services and solutions tailored to fit the needs of early phase research.
The Early Phase Center of Excellence emphasizes Advarra’s commitment to safeguarding trial participants, quality, and compliance, and adds efficiencies to support the rapid timelines inherent to early phase research. Daily institutional review board (IRB) meetings include early phase expertise for timely, reliable reviews by consistent panels. Accelerated IRB timelines are available for Phase I healthy research.
“In November 2020, Advarra acquired IntegReview IRB, an organization known for providing excellent service to the early phase community for over 20 years,” said Scott Uebele, President & Chief Research Services Officer at Advarra. “The Early Phase Center of Excellence builds upon this expertise to create a suite of predictable, transparent services and efficient solutions that helps protect research volunteers and enables Phase I researchers to meet aggressive timelines.”
Advarra’s dedicated Client Success team is trained to provide responsive and knowledgeable assistance for organizations conducting early phase research. A guidance document is available via the Advarra CIRBI Platform (login required) to help ensure early phase researchers understand IRB expectations and experience a straightforward and predictable IRB review process.
In addition to IRB services, the Early Phase Center of Excellence supports researchers with technology, consulting, and professional services to help optimize efficiency and ensure compliance. Solutions such as informed consent writing, audit support, and Clinical Conductor clinical trial management system (CTMS) support study management and expand bandwidth. Advarra’s integrated IRB, IBC, DMC, and EAC services help to further streamline processes.
“We are committed to surpassing client expectations for quality, consistency, and speed with reliable services for existing and new clients,” said Lauri Carlile, Senior Vice President of Operations at Advarra. “Our goal is to be a true partner in the protection of human participants.”
