CRO Selection and Monitoring

Franciosi Consulting’s considerable experience of the pharmaceutical and CRO industry make Franciosi Consulting ideally placed to advise pharmaceutical companies on selection of appropriate CROs. This service’s current-awareness of CRO skills and costs enables Francisosi Consulting to provide cost-effective placement of preclinical, early stage clinical, and bio-analysis studies.
