Boehringer Ingelheim Initiates a Collaborative Partnership with Science 37 to Accelerate Patient Centricity in the Development of Novel Therapies
Science 37, an industry leader in virtual clinical trials, and Boehringer Ingelheim announced today a technology enterprise collaboration agreement that will support Boehringer Ingelheim in running remote clinical trials. Science 37 is licensing access to its proprietary software platform, NORA® (Network Oriented Research Assistant), which leverages mobile technology and telemedicine capabilities, enabling patients to participate in clinical research studies regardless of their geographical location. The new collaboration brings together Science 37’s technology for running remote clinical trials and Boehringer Ingelheim’s extensive capabilities in drug discovery and clinical development of novel treatments.
“Patient Centricity is a key driver for our pipeline and portfolio. Our mission is to bring novel value added therapies to patients. By leveraging a platform such as NORA®, we will be able to allow patients to participate in clinical trials on their schedule and timetable. This is pivotal in ensuring patients feel they are invaluable partners in helping us to develop and deliver novel therapies worldwide” said Thor Voigt MD/PhD, Chief Medical Officer of Boehringer Ingelheim.
The NORA® platform enables end-to-end virtual or remote clinical trials and adheres to the highest industry quality and regulatory standards. Unlike other mobile health technology companies, Science 37’s remote clinical trial model – called the Metasite™ – helps researchers engage directly with trial participants through every stage of the trial, from screening and recruitment to telemedicine-based patient care to data lock. This direct connection online allows for greater retention of patients, increased diversity across trials, and significantly faster recruitment. The patient’s data are sent securely via NORA® to researchers who can immediately access information that would otherwise have to be collected by medical personnel through face-to-face interactions at study centers. The platform can also be used to remind patients to take their study medications at the proper time and let researchers know if participants are adhering to the study requirements.
“We’ve designed NORA® as a platform that provides researchers flexible options for how and where to collect evidence,” says Chris Ceppi, Science 37’s Chief Product Officer. “Our collaboration with Boehringer Ingelheim allows us to do even more virtual trials on a larger scale - which is great news for both patients and scientists.”
This technology enterprise collaboration agreement between Boehringer Ingelheim and Science 37 positions both companies in the forefront of the global digital health transformation. Science 37’s NORA® technology will allow Boehringer Ingelheim to accelerate enrollment and improve the participant experience with decreased patient burden, better patient retention and reduced total trial time. In addition to providing access to NORA®, Science 37 will advise on study design, protocol development, and regulatory strategy based on its unique experience in running remote clinical trials. Additionally, Boehringer Ingelheim will have the option to enlist Science 37’s teams to provide a variety of Metasite™ trial services, including principal investigators, clinical research coordinators, and patient recruitment strategies.
“When an industry leader in innovation such as Boehringer Ingelheim makes a commitment of this magnitude it signals a bright future for the patient-centered Metasite approach to clinical trials, and we’re glad we can help support it,” says Noah Craft, MD, PhD and Co-Founder and CEO of Science 37. “We appreciate the confidence Boehringer Ingelheim has shown in Science 37 and our position as the leading technology provider for remote clinical trials.”
Boehringer Ingelheim’s technology enterprise collaboration agreement with Science 37 covers use of its NORA® technology across the U.S. with plans to expand internationally in the future.
“While the U.S. is the starting point for exploration of this technological collaborative partnership we are committed to our patients globally. We aim to expand this new approach and democratize the concept of clinical research and drug development worldwide.” said Lilija Kircheis,MD,PhD, Head Global Clinical Operations, Boehringer Ingelheim.

Delticom AG/Mytyres.co.uk: Buying Great Value Tyres Online Doesn’t Mean Missing out on Professional Fitting22.3.2019 14:15:00 CET | Pressemelding
Spring is just around the corner, and it’s time for drivers to start thinking about changing to summer tyres. However, a tyre check may show that your current summer tyres are getting old, worn out, or have visible damage, such as cracks or bumps. If this is the case, then it's time for a new set of tyres. The legal minimum tread depth is 1.6 mm, however experts recommend significantly more – summer tyres should be replaced even if the tread depth is 3 mm. Regardless of mileage, you should change your tyres at least every eight to ten years. This is because the rubber starts to harden, the tyres lose grip on the road, and driving performance is affected. Of course, a set of four new tyres is a significant investment – authorised workshops can often charge between 250 and 350 pounds. If you want to save money, consider the alternatives: the result is an increasing number of customers turning to online shops such as Mytyres.co.uk to buy new tyres. The market share of tyres sold online ha
