Why global companies consider a partnership in Korea.

A well-educated population, excellent infrastructure, and access to both foreign and Korean medical experts make Korea an ideal spot for developing innovation in a cost effective, high-quality environment. The country is considered one of the fastest growing areas in Asia Pacific region for conducting clinical trials. Other factors to consider include:

  • Key demographics: With its aging population pool, Korean clinical studies are often targeting oncology and cardiovascular therapeutic areas.
  • Rapid start-up times: Clinical studies can rapidly proceed due to “in-parallel” review of institutional review board (IRB) and submission processes. Covance’s local team can help you navigate the Korean regulatory environment.
