TIMELY REVIEW

Because RDCRC does not conduct any of its activities at a hospital or medical school, we can use any central IRB selected by the Sponsor or CRO. We have worked effectively and efficiently with many different central IRBs. In addition, we have developed a rapid-response system to quickly and accurately complete all regulatory and contract requirements for study start up. RDCH, is often among the first sites to enroll study subjects in clinical trials. Pharmaceutical companies and CROs find RDCH to be one of their most responsive sites.
