In its 7th year, Life Science Leader magazine partnered again with Industry Standard Research (ISR) to determining the recipients of the 2019 CRO Leadership Awards. CTI won an award in the categories of Capabilities, Compatibility, Expertise, Quality, and Reliability. Winners of the awards are determined using primary market research conducted by ISR. Sponsors provide ratings of CROs based on recent outsourced projects, and this experiential feedback is analyzed by sponsor company size to reveal leading CROs in different performance categories

This is the second year in a row that the CTI team has been recognized at the CRO Leadership Awards.

“The CTI team has always been dedicated to providing the highest quality service to our sponsors,” remarks Timothy Schroeder, CEO of CTI. “We pride ourselves on these qualities – being reliable, providing expertise, being easy to work with, etc., and it is an honor to consistently hear from an external, unbiased source that we are successful in demonstrating those characteristics to our partners.”

CTI announced the opening of a San Diego office earlier this month. The company, with an annual average staff retention rate of 95 percent, has been working for two decades in the drug development industry across North America, Europe, South America, Pac-Asia, and Africa, specializing in clinical research programs involving critically ill patient populations, and has more than 30 offices worldwide to serve more than 200 pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device clients.
