Multi-center clinical trials take years to launch, slowing progress. At PICI, we design groundbreaking immunotherapy studies that move forward at the speed of life. Together with leading academic, industry and nonprofit partners, we answer the hard questions in the toughest-to-treat cancers. Always asking why some therapies work while others don’t. Our secret weapon: in-house trials management and translational medicine experts who speed trials from concept to finish line, so that discoveries can benefit cancer patients faster.
