The Vaccine Industry Excellence Awards will be held virtually on 5 May later this year
SGS has been nominated for ‘Best Contract Research Organisation’ at the Vaccine industry Excellence (ViE) Awards, after winning the ‘Highly Commended’ award last year in the same category.
The Awards – due to be held virtually on the 5 May, 2021 – celebrate groundbreaking achievements and research within the global vaccine industry. Unlike previous years, companies and individuals can nominate themselves for any applicable awards, with the winners then decided by a combination of public votes and recommendations from the awards’ scientific advisory board.
Last year, SGS received the ‘Highly Commended’ award in the ‘Best Contract Research Organisation’ category.
Johan Pype, Managing Director Benelux, SGS: “We are extremely pleased to be nominated for this prestigious award which confirms our achievements in continually setting standards of excellence and advocacy in the vaccine industry.
"We are working closely with so many of our honored peers, partners, and clients to safely and effectively unlock the world from this or any new threatening pandemic diseases and we will continue to invest to further develop new innovative solutions. In September 2021, our Clinical Pharmacology Unit will move to a brand new facility with increased capacity.
"This will allow us to expand our offering to Human Challenge Trials, as well as many other studies, helping to support pre-clinical evidence of efficacy, minimise risks, and maximise positive outcomes when progressing a new drug or vaccine into pivotal clinical studies.”
After a particularly noteworthy year, we’re confident that our excellent achievements will be recognised by all those who vote in the ViE Awards. Throughout the past 12 months we have, for example, provided biosafety, quality control and clinical research solutions to COVID-19 vaccine candidates.
The SGS Health Science team is continuously contributing to a safer and healthier environment. To vote, head to the ViE Awards website.
