An Answerable Challenge

While cancer and cardiovascular diseases continue to hold the top ranks of the causes of mortality in Europe and North America, we have become accustomed to the burden of disease from neurodegenerative conditions increasing, mostly as a consequence of population ageing. If one were to cast the net wider (not only focusing on conditions that have neurodegeneration as a cause, but all neurological disorders), one would see that these were the leading cause of disability-adjusted life years − which refer to the sum of lost life years and years lived with disability − worldwide in 2016. While infectious causes have decreased over the past 25 years, stroke and dementia continue to loom large across the globe (1). In high-income countries, these two conditions rank second and third respectively in terms of crude death rate.

Unmet Medical Needs? Impacted by unmet Life Sciences Staffing Needs?

Clinical Professionals

Whilst the majority of Clinical Professionals clients are working to discover and develop innovative, cost effective medicines that address unmet medical needs they are not impacting the unmet needs of training and developing new recruits into the pharma industry. The impact is highlighted within entry level Clinical Trial Administrators and Clinical Research Associates (CTA/CRA). In the past the Pharmaceutical industry had highly developed training programs for these sought after candidates. As the use of outsourcing models and CRO’s has increased and fewer Pharma businesses embark on their own R&D a substantial gap is developing in newly trained Life Science graduates entering the market to commence a career within R&D.
