consecutive year by pharmaceutical and biotech executives surveyed for Life

recognition is based on survey responses from biopharmaceutical industry
leaders responsible for making or influencing decisions to collaborate
with contract research organizations (CROs) on clinical development

companies, PPD was recognized with an individual attribute award for
providing clients with robust data analytics technology to inform
decision-making in clinical research.

“At PPD, we are committed to accelerating our customers’ promising
medicines from early development through regulatory approval and market

value,” said David Simmons, chairman and CEO of PPD. “We leverage data
analytics, patient-centered strategies and the passion of our people for
improving health. Their talent, ingenuity and commitment are our formula
for extraordinary results. Our clients can rely on us for quality
performance, continual innovation and trusted partnership.”
