Organization extends its market leadership in the decentralized clinical trial industry.
LOS ANGELES, /PRNewswire/ -- Science 37 announced today that David Coman has joined the company as its chief executive officer.
Coman joins Science 37 from ERT, a global data and technology company that helps minimize risk in clinical trials, where he led its data and analytics business after serving as the company's chief strategy officer. Prior to ERT, Coman founded the Digital Patient business at Quintiles (now IQVIA) while also serving as the company's chief marketing officer. During his more than 25 years of experience Coman helped pioneer some of the industry's first decentralized trials while driving significant growth and enterprise value.
"We're delighted to welcome David as our new CEO," said Robert C. Faulkner, chairman of the Science 37 Board of Directors. "We conducted a thorough process, and we believe David's relevant industry experience and track record of strong execution, as well as his passion and clear vision for decentralized trials make him the right leader for the next phase of Science 37's growth."
"I'm honored to have the opportunity to lead this company, which has undeniably changed the way the industry looks at the drug development process," Coman said. "Science 37 is the only company that has the complete technology stack, experienced telemedicine and home-health network, and embedded talent, to design and execute fully decentralized trials. I look forward to helping ensure we continue to make decentralized trials a reality that will dramatically shorten development timelines forever."
Science 37 conducts fully decentralized clinical trials or acts as an additional site to supplement an existing site network. The Science 37 model has achieved enrollment timelines that are up to 27 times faster than traditional sites with 90% higher retention rates on the same study. It also has been able to recruit six times the number of patients, with first patient in (FPI) within seven weeks of the final protocol.
