Cardio-Metabolic and Renal Diseases

Testing new treatments in cardio-metabolic and kidney disease clinical trials is a challenge that requires the right investigators at the right sites. That is what we provide.

Patient recruitment and retention in this area is notoriously difficult. Julius Clinical has the leading scientific experts, experienced local investigators, and fine-tuned screening procedures to minimize this obstacle and provide the patient enrolment and retention your trial requires.
