Although underrated, site selection is one of the most
significant processes for a successful trial. A recent report
suggests that 50% of sites under-enrol and 11% fail to register

understanding on the types of challenges encounterable
through the site selection process, and having this information
upfront can help CROs and sponsors put the right strategies
