Parexel Celebrates International Clinical Trials Day

Parexel Celebrates International Clinical Trials Day

BY Jamie Macdonald, Chief Executive Officer, Parexel - 5.20.19

Every year, International Clinical Trials Day represents an opportunity to raise awareness of the impact of clinical trials and honor the people who help drive clinical research all over the world. For Parexel, this means not only recognizing our employees, sites, customers and other partners, but remembering the patients who are at the core of our mission and motivate us to come to work every day.

As an industry, we must keep innovating to accelerate new life-saving and life-enhancing therapies to patients who need them. This effort is not getting any easier, yet we must continue to forge new paths and find new solutions to the many challenges that come with bringing a new drug to market. We must work to simplify the work we do and not overengineer or overcomplicate processes while maintaining the highest standards of quality and safety. And we must continue to ask ourselves at the end of the day, are we doing the right thing for the patient?

At Parexel, the patient is at the heart of everything we do. To demonstrate our commitment to patients to the world, in recognition of International Clinical Trials Day on May 20 and continuing through the end of May, we’ll be sharing stories of patients whose lives have been impacted by clinical research. By elevating these stories and keeping patients top of mind, we’ll continue to spotlight the progress we’re making  toward the ultimate goal of improving access to important therapies.

Follow Parexel on LinkedIn or Facebook to view these stories, and every time they are shared with #parexelwithheart, we’ll make a donation to the Center for Information and Study on Clinical Research Participation (CISCRP) to further educate the public and patients on the importance of clinical research. 

On International Clinical Trials Day and every day, Parexel is grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the development of new therapies and move us onto place of cure, of care, of hope. 


We are always available for a conversation.
