Clinical Evidence

With a team of data managers, physicians, medical statisticians and statistical programmers, and medical writers, Clinical Science supports innovation translation at the AO with clinical evidence grounded in sound scientific methodology. In close collaboration with other AO ITC business units, Clinical Science is part of an efficient pathway to transform ideas into published clinical evidence.

Aside from providing internal services in methodological, statistical, literature, and regulatory support of clinical studies, Clinical Science has been the driving force behind the newly launched AO Global Data initiative.
