Supporting research.

Ever since its founding, CBRD has assisted researchers in a range of fields by providing valuable ancillary services, ranging from quantitative analytical services through our award-winning expertise in visualisation to ethics reviews. Our in-house suite of research tools, including specialist tools for clinical trials and epidemiological surveys, have assisted researchers worldwide. Meanwhile, the expertise of our clinical data team has provided small research teams with massive-scale, high-availability, high-performance data collection, analysis and handling solutions at a fraction of the capital outlay that such services would have ordinarily required.

CBRD provides unmatched quantitative expertise, from bioinformatics through visualisation and illustration to data handling and management and ethical guidance. Our research infrastructure as a service (RIaaS) model fosters innovation by reducing barriers to entry. There's no reason why small research teams shouldn't avail themselves of cutting edge data science - without the capital outlay.Wei L., Research Assistance coordinator

CBRD offers a wide range of research services, including data handling and management solutions for researchers, data collection tools for fieldwork and self-reporting, data analysis (especially epidemiological analyses and clinical trial data analysis), verification and ethical supervision/IRB services. We support research teams by seamless augmentation of existing capabilities with a cadre of highly trained experts who each have decades of research experience. Our clients include both academia and private sector research.

Working with CBRD's Research Assistance team is like having a team of superstars, all an e-mail away. Whether it's about planning a clinical trial or reviewing epidemiological data for a pending litigation, we provide a fast, timely and affordable service for clients of all sizes.Cassie F., senior epidemiologist (Research Assistance)
