/PRNewswire/ --Chiltern International Limited (Chiltern), a global contract research organization (CRO), announced that Chiltern has been recognized with a CRO Leadership Award in all five categories: Quality, Reliability, Productivity, Innovation and Regulatory. The awards are given by Life Science Leader publication based on the data-driven research of Nice Insight. Chiltern is the only organization to be recognized in all five categories for three straight years.
The CRO Leadership Awards were developed to better serve pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical executives in their vetting process of CROs when they have a new project. On an annual basis, Nice Insight conducts a pharmaceutical and biotechnology survey deployed to over 40,000 outsourcing-facing biotech and pharma executives. Companies achieving top 20 percentile perception scores in the areas of Innovation, Productivity, Quality, Regulatory, and Reliability will be recognized for their achievement.
"At Life Science Leader, we think having data-driven awards is more objective and valuable than having those awarded as a result of a nomination and voting process. The winners should be proud of these awards because they were determined by data gathered from customers," stated Rob Wright, Editor in Chief, Life Science Leader.
