How the World’s First Clinical Trial Market Network Saves Stakeholders Time and Money

July 12, 2022


ClinEco–a clinical trial ecosystem and market network designed to streamline the process of identifying and selecting clinical trial partners–is the first of its kind. Co-founders Dr. Marina Filshtinsky, SVP of Strategy and Product Development, and Micah Lieberman, VP of Community and Business Development, speak with Deborah Borfitz, Clinical Research News senior writer and podcast host, about the new platform's aim to revolutionize the way stakeholders navigate the clinical trial space. ClinEco reduces costs and increases study speeds by eliminating inefficiencies. “Identifying, validating, and contacting vendors and partners for clinical trials is a well-known bottleneck. The process is time-consuming, labor-intensive, inefficient, and expensive,” explains Filshtinsky. Hear the founders speak about creating a feature-rich platform that adds value over time and their goals for the network’s launch and beyond.
