  • How Decentralized Trials Make Research More Accessible and Inclusive for Participants and Sites

    Clinical Research News | Traditionally designed clinical trials chronically struggle to enroll representative patient populations that will yield the comprehensive data needed to ensure that a new treatment will be safe and effective for everyone. I’ve been excited to watch decentralized clinical trial (DCT) approaches become more widely adopted because of their potential to democratize access to research. In order to produce the most accurate and reliable data about each new drug’s efficacy and safety, we have to meet participants and under-resourced sites where they are.
