About CRAB

CRAB’s approach to preventing and curing cancer is to collaborate with investigators to design, implement, and execute clinical trials such that reliable and replicable results are obtained. Clinical trials are extremely expensive and will guide new therapeutics, prevention programs and standards of care. Thus we contribute our expertise from the design of the study and protocol development through to the final analysis and publication of results.

Our highly trained cancer research specialists, together with collaborators, leverage CRAB’s proprietary customizable database and electronic data capture system, to provide seamless data collection, query tracking, and resolution so that analyses follow immediately upon study completion.
