The awards are a reflection of PRA’s ability to quickly respond to clients’ needs and to support their diverse portfolios of work through our global experience, knowledge, and expertise.

Survey participants were recruited from pharma and biopharma companies of all sizes and screened for decision-making influence related to working with CROs. Respondents only evaluate companies with which they have worked on an outsourced project within the past 18 months. This level of qualification ensures that survey responses are based on actual involvement with CROs and clear experiential data.
