Enable effective, patient-centric strategies.

Understandably, within the entire field of neuroscience, there are a broad range of disorders such as neurodegenerative, developmental, psychiatric, acute critical care, as well as special patient populations like elderly or pediatric that are highly sensitive to risks that arise from age- or mental- related challenges, non-compliance and psychological instability.

Our clinical studies experts at Fortrea have pioneered innovative approaches to recruit and retain these individuals and we offer insightful methods for wet, tissue, imaging and digital biomarker collection to support precision medicine. Coupled with our commitment to patient and caregiver centricity through our real-world data and partnerships with patient advocacy groups, we can help optimize protocols and increase the likelihood of your trial’s success.

Leverage our partnerships for your neuroscience study.

Increase the chances for meeting your program objectives by selecting the right endpoints by leveraging our established strategic partnerships with vendors who have strong expertise in neuro-specific clinical outcome assessment (COA), imaging and digital technology. Combining their expertise with our multifaceted neuroscience clinical expertise at Fortrea, we can support your selection of the right neurological outcome measures, enable continuous rating surveillance to monitor the integrity of your endpoints and ultimately maximize the differentiation of your product.

Select high-performing sites across your program.

Advance your program with the right, high-performing sites. We have strong partnerships and experience working with neuroscience-specialized sites, allowing us to reduce your trial’s startup time. Augmented with the industry’s deepest performance data, we can help you find investigators with the highest chances of success. We also offer the benefit of our practical experience gained from developing methods and training sites on the application of complex routes of administration, such as intrathecal or intracerebral delivery.

Beyond our existing partnerships with sites, we are constantly pursuing additional sites as we expand our network globally—including sites in emerging regions such as Latin America, Asia and Africa—to continuously optimize patient recruitment.
