Whether the need is traditional medical monitoring, study design or simply providing medical advice on an ad-hoc basis, our Physician Network provides sponsors, and in particular small to medium size biotech firms, with a flexible and cost effective solution to engage the right medical support at the right time for their development programs.”
In addition to medical monitoring and safety oversight of clinical programs, Novella’s physician consultants are available to provide a range of medical services throughout the research process including:

· Medical input and review of study output, NDA and PMA submissions
In alignment with the Novella Clinical Resourcing business model, the Physician Network is designed to significantly broaden the medical and therapeutic expertise available for Novella Clinical’s full-service clients as well as for those sponsors managing trials internally.
“In support of POZEN’s recent pivotal program, we tapped into Novella Clinical Resourcing’s physician network to obtain medical expertise to support the handling of safety events for a complex program,” noted POZEN, Inc.’s Vice President of Clinical Operations Lisa Zimmerman. “With one call we were able to immediately secure a very tenured clinical research physician to assist our group and help move the work forward at a faster pace.
