Lincoln, Neb. (June 15, 2022) — For the seventh consecutive year Celerion has been named recipient of the Life Science Leader and Clinical Leader’s CRO Leadership Awards in all five award categories. Well respected within the pharmaceutical industry, the awards recognize the winning Clinical Research Organization (CRO) in five categories: capabilities, compatibility, expertise, quality, and reliability in meeting the needs of big and small pharmaceutical clients alike.

“We are of course honored again for such comprehensive recognition,” said Celerion CEO Susan Thornton Ph.D. “This award validates the many things we do to enable clients to bring drugs quickly to market, bettering the lives of people in need around the world. It’s gratifying that our commitment to excellence is noted by this pillar of our industry,” she added.

Celerion was additionally designated a Champion performer for scoring one standard deviation or more above the weighted average in each award category including capabilities, compatibility and quality.

“Industry Standard Research continues to consider it an honor to provide the primary market research data for Life Science Leader and Clinical Leader’s CRO Leadership Awards.
