Medelis Partners

Medelis is accustomed to working closely with other cutting-edge organizations in their respective fields in a “best-in-class” partnership model.  With this model, no single organization is deviating from its core competencies by trying to be all things to all people.

Each organization takes pride in its unique service offerings and is able to provide the most talented resources and highest quality service in their respective core competencies.  This combination of specialized services gives sponsors a level of responsiveness and attention rarely delivered by large CROs.

Our partners include:

National Foundation for Cancer Research

Founded in 1973, the National Foundation for Cancer Research (NFCR) supports the work of proven scientists with the funding to accelerate research into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Cumulatively, the organization has provided more than $200 million to support discovery-oriented research, and remains determined to assist in the exploration of previously uncharted territories for potential anticancer agents. NFCR and Medelis have joined forces to take advantage of NFCR’s strong international ties to open U.S.-style clinical research organizations in India, China and elsewhere in Asia. These new organizations will offer pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies access to clinical research services with lower cost structures and dramatically improved access to largely untapped patient populations.
