CRS Ranks #34 in the 2023 Pittsburgh Business Times List of Life Sciences / Medical Device Companies

The region’s biotech ecosystem remains strong in Pittsburgh — fueled by the presence of UPMC, Highmark/Allegheny Health Network and fed by the University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon University, Duquesne University and other regional institutions — as is evidenced by the companies on the List of Life Sciences and Medical Device Firms in the Pittsburgh region.

“Altered Humans—How Biotech Is Changing Who We Are” — an Epoch Original Documentary

In this new documentary, director Shaista Justin probes the moral and ethical questions surrounding medical innovations and technologies, asking not only whether the science is plausible, but if it is even desirable. Does progress for the sake of progress really move the needle forward for us as a species, or are we merely unwitting victims of medical experimentation that shouldn’t be pursued in the first place?

Clinical Research Strategies President, CEO and Founder, Alethea Wieland, is featured with other industry experts as they weigh in on the future of health.

CLINICAL RESEARCH STRATEGIES

An End-to-End Approach to Compliance in Life Sciences

Life Sciences Review, March 2021

“In the EU, while regulations are meant for ensuring patients’ safety by adding more conformance requirements, they have severely compromised the Life Sciences industry’s quest to push the boundaries of innovation,” says Alethea Wieland, the President and Founder of Clinical Research Strategies.

According to a study published by Deloitte, “Globalization, alliances and partnerships, heightened transparency expectations, increased emphasis on innovative technologies, and ever-evolving needs for existing and emerging customers are driving them to re-examine their approach to compliance.”

As such, identifying, analyzing, and mitigating compliance risks have evolved into a fundamental prerequisite for Life Sciences companies in developing an effective strategy to help future-proof their business. However, keeping up the innovation pace with this regulatory landscape will no longer be an easy task, especially for startups and mid-sized organizations.
