Syneos Health Signs Agreement with Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital to Support Clinical Trials in Thailand

Bangkok 18th March, 2024 – Syneos Health®, a leading fully integrated biopharmaceutical solutions organization, has signed an agreement with Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital, Mahidol University. The agreement expands the Company’s clinical trial capabilities across a broad range of therapeutic areas in Thailand.

Siriraj Hospital now becomes part of the Syneos Health Catalyst and Site Network Partnerships program, including 110+ clinical sites and 60+ commercial site networks. As part of the Site Network Partnerships program, Siriraj Hospital joins a select set of high-performing investigative site networks strategically aligned to Syneos Health’s clinical studies. Site Network Partnerships provide enhanced patient access, improved efficiencies, specialized expertise and access to diverse patient populations across all therapeutic areas and phases.

“In medicine, as health care professionals, we are never satisfied: there is always a patient we want to help, always a disease we want to treat, always more we want to know to take the best decisions for patients and their families and care givers. This is why we work with so many around the world in the development of new treatments.

These treatments are for all patients in the world and ideally, they are developed with all patients in the world represented in clinical trials.

It is an exciting day today to formalize the collaboration between Siriraj hospital and Syneos Health. Together, we can open clinical trials for patients in Bangkok – offering treatment options that are not available today, while collecting data for the patients of tomorrow.

As this marks the finalization of several months of preparation in both organizations, it is the start of many further successful collaborations, now and in the future!” said Dr. Terttu Haring, President, Site & Patients.
