Councils to Accelerate Research Excellence (CARE Councils)


World-class support for areas of significant therapeutic need

Velocity’s CARE Councils are expert-led groups that address specific intersections of therapeutic areas, diseases, specialty populations, and other factors that pose challenges to efficient clinical development.

Each Velocity CARE Council comprises experienced physicians, veteran clinicians, and operational experts. These centralized councils meet to discuss scientific trends, review high-priority clinical trials, and refine best practices for Velocity sites worldwide.

CARE Councils enhance the way all Velocity sites support specialty research programs, and ensure patients are engaged with an authentic, informed touch.
