Ichor Life Sciences Announces Launch of Ichor Clinical Trial Services

Ichor Life Sciences recently announced the launch of Ichor Clinical Trial Services. With the founding of Ichor Clinical, the company is now able to serve biotechnology and pharmaceutical clients from early preclinical studies through late-stage clinical trials and FDA approval.

Ichor Clinical offers a spectrum of customized clinical trial solutions, ranging from individual service options to full CRO assistance. Centered on solving each client’s unique challenges, the team specializes in critical areas such as protocol design, site identification and qualification, and recruitment and retention strategies. Ichor’s agile, relationship-focused approach allows the company to address complexities that may be difficult for larger, more standardized CROs, including assisting ongoing trials when they encounter enrollment hurdles or operational complications, restoring the trial’s trajectory toward success. Ichor’s preclinical offerings include protein services, pharmacology and discovery services, and consulting services.

“The launch of Ichor Clinical as part of the Ichor ecosystem creates a premium offering in the industry, providing biotechnology and pharmaceutical clients with a single partner to navigate preclinical work through clinical trials with customized and flexible engagement options,” said Ichor Life Sciences Founder and CEO Kelsey Moody, PhD, MBA. “As both a CRO and longevity drug development company, Ichor brings together a unique combination of expertise that allows our team to understand clients’ needs and develop innovative solutions that address their most difficult challenges. We look forward to serving our clinical trial clients with the same caliber of personalized, relationship-first services that clients have come to expect and trust in our preclinical services.”

Lisa Sonneborn, MA, LMHC, serves as President of Ichor Clinical Trial Services. Sonneborn previously founded and served as CEO of Clarity Clinical Research, which was acquired by the world’s largest site management organization (SMO) in 2021. She is well known and respected in the industry, particularly as a leader in clinical trial operations for Alzheimer’s disease and NASH, having participated in countless industry-sponsored studies. Ichor Clinical employees have extensive sponsor and site experience, providing them with a deep understanding of every aspect of clinical trials.

“Having worked on numerous clinical trials and gained insight into the complex issues that sponsors and sites often face, Ichor Clinical is well-positioned to anticipate and resolve challenges, ensuring the efficient and effective progression of trials,” said Sonneborn. “We concentrate on tailoring solutions to our clients’ specific needs by identifying key issues, ultimately enabling companies to advance their pipelines and contribute to building a healthier world.”

The full suite of services that Ichor now offers is more critical than ever as the CRO industry undergoes consolidation. Through strategic collaborations with renowned institutions, key opinion leaders, and regulatory authorities worldwide, Ichor has strong partnerships that enhance the company’s capacity to support even the most challenging projects. This provides Ichor’s clients with access to cutting-edge technologies, world-class facilities, and diverse patient populations.
