WHO WE ARE
Our Focus & Vision
InFocus Clinical was born out of the visible disconnect between large, traditional CROs and their clients. We have worked for and with large and small biotech and pharma sponsors as well as CROs large and small. InFocus Clinical was founded with the centennial mission of coalescing the best and brightest clinical research professionals and proven leaders in retina vitreous development to advance ophthalmology therapeutic development.
Supported and co-founded by USRetina, the largest consortium of retina specialists, we answered the call of delivering a team exclusively dedicated to advancing ophthalmology development. Based on our tremendously diverse industry experience, we offer an integrated vision with an emphasis on using the most committed and experienced clinical research professionals in the clinical research industry to provide quality, timely, flexible execution second to none. We understand that only a therapeutically focused model – with specialized staff training and expertise – delivers the quality, efficiency, respect and results every company and every product deserves.
The InFocus Clinical Advantage
The unique positioning of InFocus Clinical, as founded by USRetina, ensures rapid integration of your protocol with KOLs, key enrolling sites and, ultimately, the greatest possible exposure of your product throughout development. The InFocus Scientific Advisory Board is comprised of the most proven and respected retina specialists. The fact InFocus is not just therapeutically aligned but focused, with proprietary and unprecedented staff training, ensures our staff are the most knowledgeable and your product is developed with superior efficiency and commitment.
With all of these elements, InFocus Clinical assures an unparalleled quality, integrity, flexibility, knowledge, experience, insight and responsiveness to the needs of a protocol or drug development program large or small.
