OncoBay Clinical is a full service CRO focusing on complex oncology indications including Immunotherapy and cellular therapies. We know that innovative research requires innovative operations and build that into our culture, systems and processes.  Our culture values and rewards critical thinking and open dialogue about quality — and that goes far beyond sole reliance on tools and checklists. We have an infrastructure to enhance access to patients, and integrated technology to provide higher quality and faster access to results. We remain vigilant and consistent with the advice in FDA Guidance on Monitoring, which encourages a quality risk management approach to clinical trial design and operation, and discourages a one size fits all mentality.
