Industry Response: COVID-19

LMC Manna Research is prepared to take on COVID-19

Our organization was founded on the principle that everyone deserves the equal opportunity to a life of improved health, and it hasn’t changed in the wake of COVID-19.

The importance of participating in clinical research could not be stronger than it is now. We are ready to support the movement towards a cure, and provide the processes possible to meet the needs of the research community for COVID-19 research trials.

For the past 20+ years, LMC Manna Research has worked to reshape and improve the clinical research landscape globally. We pride ourselves on being global leaders in vaccine clinical trial enrollment, providing the capability and capacity to enroll all of Canada’s patient allocation within our network.

Let’s work together to beat COVID-19.
