We're pleased to have LifeTree's support to make this happen," said Laurie Ryan, Ph.D., the Center's assistant director for research and a neuropsychologist.
Philip D. Quarles, chief information officer of LifeTree, explained the advantages of LifeTree's EDC system: "LifeTree ICTM 4.2 was developed to transform the clinical trials process, with data-on-demand, eCRF scoring and other key features essential for trial acceleration."
