In the midst of a pandemic, industry is looking for ways to ensure continuity of clinical trials while keeping patients safe.

In the third episode in our Coronavirus Special Edition Series, David Thompson, Senior Vice President, Real World Evidence at Syneos Health discusses potential applications for virtual research in the real world, and the pros and cons of going virtual, offering a glimpse into the future of clinical research.
