Bratislava, Slovakia: – Business Worldwide Magazine has named Dr. Natalia Fetkovska, Chief Executive of award-winning full service clinical research organization (CRO) SanaClis, as the Best CEO Clinical Research Organization Industry 2016.

In a recent interview with Business Worldwide, Dr. Fetkovska explained that SanaClis had powerful advantages in both – capabilities and geographic coverage. It is unique among full service CROs in being able to manage IMP / CTS, both centrally and locally.
“This is where SanaClis really stands out,” said Dr. Fetkovska.
Full IMP management
“SanaClis offers a full IMP management and related services along with classical CRO services. We developed our own software for IMP management that enables our clients to have direct access to IMP stocks and movements in our warehouses, so they have full access to IMP storage conditions and transparency on storage and maintenance of stock. This is a unique service that is not provided by any of our competitors,” she told the magazine.
“We can help open the door to the EU for non-EU companies. At the same time we can open the door to post-Soviet countries (Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Georgia etc.). We can do this with fewer vendors and a leaner, efficient business structure,” she added.
Best possible cost-quality solutions
Dr. Fetkovska said the strong global network of partner companies SanaClis enjoyed within exQuisite Alliance® across service and therapeutic areas allowed it to structure studies to suit clients strategic aims.
“Large or global CROs quite often place studies in countries they need to develop, or simply to avoid staff redundancies. This aspect is often neglected even though there might be quite severe negative impact on study timelines and costs,” she said.
By contrast, SanaClis can focus on designing optimal project-specific country splits and teams. “Our aim is to offer the best possible “cost – quality” solution by using our own resources, facilities and partnership synergies,” Dr. Fetkovska explained.
