Clinical Research Associates (CRAs)
Syntactx CRAs possess a broad range of experience and expertise to seamlessly facilitate and streamline study execution.
Our CRAs are highly trained and able to assist with a multitude of issues, both routine and complex - from assisting with the creation of study-specific case report forms, to safety surveillance and data analysis; no aspect of study site coordination is beyond our abilities.
In addition to data verification and site monitoring, our CRAs build effective relationships with study Sponsors and site staff, perform site and project management, and monitor enrollment activities in an effort to expedite the path to approval. In an environment of ever-increasing regulation and increasing timelines, Syntactx CRAs work hard to ensure timely and accurate results.
