Scattered around the world are individuals endowed with brilliance and ingenuity, impassioned to work hard for success in a given arena, or possessing some combination of those attributes. They are tenacious and optimistic, undeterred by setbacks, and are driven by something esoteric or altruistic: in the outsourced clinical research space, that motivator is delivering effective therapies to patients faster and more efficiently.

They are the children’s hospital window washer who dresses as Spider-Man or the postal worker always ready with a joke — their presence brightens a place, making it a more positive and productive environment.
