PPD® LABORATORIES CENTRAL LAB

There is a growing demand in China for standardized lab testing capabilities. At the central lab in Shanghai, we leverage our diverse expertise to offer safety and general lab testing, specialized testing, biomarker testing and custom assay development and testing. At this state-of-the-art facility, you’ll work with cutting-edge analytical equipment to provide high-quality data across a wide range of technologies and applications for all phases of pharmaceutical development.

CLINICAL MONITORING

The clinical monitoring employees based in Beijing, Shanghai and other major cities define and develop clinical programs in China. We ensure the highest quality review of data and effective interaction with study sites, including on-site monitoring throughout a study. Our clinical research associates (CRAs), remote site monitors (RSMs), project assistants (PAs) and client-dedicated teams oversee and administer the health and efficacy of treatments during trials. We support the logistics and organization of clinical sites to ensure that patients and clinical trial participants receive needed care.

BIOSTATISTICS AND PROGRAMMING

We are passionate about data and are technically agile. We drive enhanced value for our clients and patients. Determined to improve patient health, we provide industry-leading statistical programming and clinical pharmacology contributions through global delivery, consistent quality adherence and scientific insight. Through a procedural framework based on robust planning and specifications, we work to deliver the highest quality deliverables — from planning clinical trials and development programs through knowing the results of a study and leading the regulatory submissions.

REGULATORY AFFAIRS

If you’re a strategic thinker, planner and multitasker as comfortable working independently as you are on a team, PPD® is the place to be. Our more than 775 regulatory experts in 29 countries deliver compliant deliverables based on solid judgment and contribute to regulatory strategy to help our clients navigate the changing Chinese clinical trial regulatory environment. With our end-to-end solutions, we work to ensure regulatory compliance throughout the product life cycle, while helping to advance global product development.

SITE AND PATIENT ACCESS

Our goal-driven teams combine and deliver startup activities for clinical trials in China, collaborating to improve processes, cycle and flexibility. We partner with sites, businesses and colleagues around the world to decrease startup timelines and exceed expectations for our clients.

PROJECT DELIVERY

We direct, coordinate and manage the technical and operational aspects of local clinical trial projects in China and global projects toward the successful completion of clinical trials. We collaborate with functional area leads to identify and evaluate fundamental issues on the project and ensure that solutions are implemented. We’re proud of the vital role we have in helping our clients deliver life-changing therapies.
