The core values to which they adhere are scientific, creativity, partnership, focus, and social responsibility. You will be part of a small team surrounded by energetic professionals in an innovative culture that stimulates you to come forward with new ideas. Besides the studies being unique, the role is also quite unique, allowing you to escape the daily rush of clinical research and instead focus on making sure everything and everyone is compliant.
