Speaking on the occasion, Dr Krathish Bopanna, President and Executive Director of SRC, said “We have established as an Independent CRO with integrated services. This partnership is a significant milestone for us as this would enable us to extend sponsor’s clinical trial programs to the African continent. South Africa is a key market in our business strategy this year, as the requirement for clinical trial is increasing from the sponsors. As per WHO report, South Africa and India are key markets for infectiousdiseases  and this relationship will strengthen our position to conduct clinical trials (as a full service) in the areas of Infectious diseases (HIV/AIDS), Trauma & pain and Complicated skin & skin structure (cSSI) infections.

We already have our presence in South Africa providing GxP consulting services to one of the largest pharmaceutical company. This partnership will surely strengthen our association with South Africa in a big way. 

Speaking on the strength of this partnership, Mr. Siza Mphele, Managing Director of LogicTrials said, “We have established our presence in South Africa as a highly credible CRO providing Clinical Research Management Services; and Clinical Trials Logistics & Supply Chain Data Delivery Support to the biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies in South Africa for domestic as well as global sponsors. This partnership with SRC will enable us to make our presence felt in the Asian continent especially in India, as many sponsors are including India in their clinical development programs”.

This partnership will strengthen the organization in conducting various clinical programs at competitive cost with uncompromising quality through co promoting each other’s services to the potential global sponsors.
