Founder and Head Clinical Trial Center
Having been responsible for numerous clinical trials in my scientific career, I’ve become convinced of the benefits of joining efforts in reaching scientific goals. Starting with the successful EUFEST trial, and confirmed in the subsequent large-scale clinical trials we’ve conducted, clear benefits became apparent of conducting scientific research within an organized network of excellence. Collaborating with multiple, specialized research centers, the access to potentially eligible participants is substantially increased, which optimizes enrollment rates. Generalizability of the results is significantly increased by collecting data across multiple countries, sometimes even across continents. In the end, such collaborations result in more rapid scientific advancement and ideally a future reduction of the burden of disease.
Our Clinical Trial Center in Utrecht has an excellent track record on multiple large-scale clinical trials since 2011, with continuously increasing experience and expertise. Prior success is the best predictor for future success!
