Specialty CNM Service Offerings from CSS/CORE Science Solutions

Since 1991, CSS’ parent company Criterium, has operated as a complete services CRO. While we maintain a site database registry of over 3200 individual listings of PI’s and study locations across multiple therapeutic areas, we also organized and manage oncology consortia in specific therapeutic indications.

Because sponsors sometimes have preferred provider arrangements with CRO’s, and want to work with the consortia we have organized, our subsidiary CORE Science Solutions (CSS) provides a centralized network model (CNM) to CRO, biotech, pharma and medical devices companies.
