Following the direction set last year when GCT established clinical operations in three new countries — Hungary, Czech Republic, and Slovakia, — in May 2017 the company moved further into Central Europe and opened an office in Warsaw, Poland. GCT presently offers its clients full assistance for clinical trials conduct in Poland, including feasibility studies, clinical monitoring, study management, and regulatory support.
For the last decade, Poland has remained the largest clinical trials market in CEE region due to its population of 38 million people, unrealized enrollment potential, experienced and qualified investigators and clinical research professionals, well-established network of research sites, and competitive trial costs versus the Western European ones.
Polish operations are an important addition to GCT geographical coverage, putting the company into position to provide CRO services in the majority of CEE countries and offering all the region’s advantages to our clients.
Dr. Eugene Selivra, Chief Executive Officer of GCT, explains:
The reason behind this strategic decision is continuous market demand. We have been receiving inquiries from our clients regarding capabilities in Poland throughout the years, and this year we felt it was a logical next step for company development. Our goal has always been to meet our customers’ needs and provide the best possible services within our operational and geographical expertise. We look forward to strengthening our presence in the region and client relationships by offering a full set of services, now in Poland as well.
GCT Warsaw office is located just 20 minutes from Chopin Airport.
