“When we talk about ‘disruption,’ we mean replacing the traditional model with a new gold standard for operational processes, patient recruitment, site management, and all the things that have forever plagued pharma. We are redefining expectations about what is possible in clinical development in terms of speed, reliability, scalability and reproducibility. Elixia does only a few things and we do them really well. We have to, because what’s on the line for our clients is missing timelines, a lack of diversity, or even failed trials. Clients and patients deserve more.”
