Catawba Research Partners With Elligo Health Research® to Expand Access and Simplify Clinical Research Participation

December 6, 2023

CHARLOTTE, N.C.; Dec. 6, 2023 Catawba Research, a leading global clinical research organization (CRO) that has established itself as a trusted partner in the development of new drugs and therapies, with a strong focus on delivering high-quality research solutions, announced a new partnership with Elligo Health Research, the largest healthcare-enabling research organization, that will expand access to clinical trials. All Catawba’s clinical studies will now be available through Elligo’s new Study Marketplace platform to drive participation and increase efficiencies for research sites and sponsors. 

“At Catawba Research, we are focused on driving innovation in clinical research and delivering agile solutions across an evolving portfolio of therapeutic areas,” said Catawba CEO Andrew Silverman, Ph.D. “This fits our mission and partnering with Elligo helps create greater access to research as studies are being delivered to hundreds of experienced research and healthcare-first sites.”  

Through Study Marketplace, Catawba’s studies are listed to more than 500 subscribing sites that can easily apply for those studies and track progress. Sites can quickly browse a curated portfolio of available studies that are the right fit for their site, apply for those of interest, track progress, and collaborate among team members. Ultimately, sites are receiving more effective site selection and patient recruitment, leading to accelerated timelines for trials. 

“Study Marketplace was built to create more transparency and streamline the sales and site selection process between clinical trial sponsors, clinical research organizations (CROs), and sites,” said Elligo CEO  John Potthoff, Ph.D. “At Elligo, we understand how challenging it is for sites to identify new study opportunities and manage the sales cycle. Moving Catawba trials from a manual process to Study Marketplace will allow sites to avoid jumping between countless systems and communication methods to manage trials, which means more time can be spent on trial execution and patient care.”
