Is This the Biggest Trend in TMF Management This Year?

Biotechnology and pharmaceutical sponsors have been operating in an outsourcing model for many years now, primarily to control the costs of drug development and respond to the globalization of clinical trials and need for more diverse patient populations 

Outsourcing in clinical trials allows specialized third-party groups to provide crucial clinical trial services while the sponsor monitors progress and outcomes from a distance.
