Linear has a variety of departments that specialise in running the clinical trial from business development, start up, recruitment and screening, project teams, quality assurance and laboratory. Each department works together to ensure clinical trials are run safely and efficiently.

Reliable clinical trial data is one thing, but at Linear we go further. We actively listen, contribute ideas and add value at every stage of your medical mission, so you can realise your therapy’s medical and commercial potential sooner.
