I joined the Emergent team in 2021 as a tennis ball liaison, but quickly rode the corporate ladder to a VP position in the attention seeking department. In my free time I enjoy aged bones, long walks in the park, and squirrels.

President, COO - Cerapedics, Inc

When we decided to embark on our second FDA IDE clinical trial at Cerapedics, I was very confident in my choice of Emergent Clinical Consulting to act as our CRO. Now that we have completed enrollment in this challenging study in lumbar spinal fusion, I couldn’t be happier with that decision and with our partnership with Emergent. From the start of protocol development, though site selection and onboarding, patient recruitment, site and data management and monitoring, we couldn’t ask for a more effective and cost-efficient collaborator. From the highest level of strategic planning and brainstorming to grinding out the necessary and tedious work of running a study, you will find yourself in good hands working with Emergent Clinical Consulting.

Emergent’s adaptable approach to clinical consulting is what brought me to their door. The team’s deep knowledge, clear communication, and exemplary work product is what made them a trusted partner. The reason they will always have my business is the calm and dependable counsel they provide clients in times of need. Clinical research is inherently messy and stressful. When challenging moments arise during a project, Emergent will deftly and gently shepherd you through them.

Scientific Intake’s multi-site clinical trial would not have been possible without the Emergent team. Their intimate knowledge of medical device trials were key from the first day of protocol development to the last charts in the statistical analysis. In-between site selection, Investigator management, subject recruitment techniques and Emergent’s ability to deal with the multiple daily issues that arise in a de Novo device trial resulted in them being more than a member of the team- they were the Team Leader. I have never worked with an outside supplier that was more dedicated to our success than our own employees- until we partnered with Emergent.

Former CMO, Multiple Healthcare Companies

Emergent Clinical Consulting is my “go to” clinical vendor, trigger-ready to provide the support necessary to initiate and execute clinical trials. I have hired their services at multiple companies over the past 10 years and have been pleased with the results. For small companies or start-ups with aggressive timelines, Emergent offers the perfect solution: highly experienced clinical research professionals, ready to “jump in” on a project regardless of its stage, with greater efficiency and transparency relative to the large CROs. The Emergent consultant is a seamless member of the in-house team, assumes ownership over critical tasks, and remains in place until the agreed upon tasks and milestones have been accomplished. There is no “bait and switch”with Emergent. Rarely do you see this level of dedication, and for this, I give them my highest recommendation.

CEO, Evolution Optiks

I had the opportunity to work with Emergent for more than a year on one of our medical devices. While a majority of the CROs out there have a blunt approach with high upfront costs and no real sense of comfort or transparency, I found Emergent to be distinctly in another class, where not only the expenses are smartly reduced, but they are also discussed at every stage, from a logical standpoint that even someone who is not familiar with the processes would understand them. This, combined with the accommodating, approachable staff, available on short notice anytime, makes Emergent a group that I would recommend and I intend to rely on them with future medical devices.
