  • Accelerating and simplifying the drug development processes through collaboration.
The biopharmaceutical industry strives to ensure patient wellness and safety by producing new medicines that are safe and effective. However, the development of these medicines can be hampered by inefficiencies and challenges throughout the process of conducting clinical studies and applying for and receiving regulatory approval to make the medicine available to patients.

Through TransCelerate, participants in these processes collaboratively develop tools and procedures, clarify and harmonize standards and improve the patient experience so that clinical trials can occur more efficiently, results can be reported more accurately, regulatory reviews can be streamlined and patients around the world can have access to safe and effective medicines more quickly. TransCelerate has a portfolio of nearly 40 initiatives focused on specific aspects of these processes.

Results and milestones

Since its founding in 2012, the TransCelerate partnership has developed and published multiple tools to aid in the efficient and effective development of new medicines. It has also developed shared knowledge bases on topics such as communication with clinical trial participants, investigator qualification and safety monitoring.
