Job Details

MedAvante, a subsidiary of WIRB-Copernicus Group was founded in 2002 with the goal of helping to bring better drug therapies to market through smarter, faster clinical trials. With this goal in mind, MedAvante set out to solve one of Pharma’s most intractable problems: the bias and variability that cause failed or inconclusive trials for Central Nervous System (CNS) therapies. A few years later, MedAvante experts pioneered Central Ratings and introduced the concept of Central Review utilizing their groundbreaking Virgil eSource solution.
