Medpace Advantages for Infectious Disease Studies

Infectious disease studies have grown in complexity with traditional microbiology methods increasingly supplemented with new molecular techniques, providing rapid and accurate data, facilitating improved understanding of disease mechanism and enhanced clinical outcomes.  Medpace’s central laboratories’ in house capabilities coupled with strategic laboratory partnerships with top labs in microbiology and virology provide the specific testing required for each study.  This approach streamlines timelines, simplifies requirements for sites, and provides a centralized model for communication.

Key benefits include:

  • Access to top research scientists who are therapeutically focused on infectious disease, deliver regulatory-quality reports and meet the tight timelines demanded in ID trials
  • With Medpace central labs coordinating the shipping between sites and labs around the world, logistics are greatly simplified, resulting in higher efficiency
  • Specialty labs integrate seamlessly with Medpace’s full-service approach to clinical trial management
