Why 2023 is an Excellent Time to Start Your Clinical Research Career

The COVID-19 pandemic had an important impact on clinical research and drug development. It gave birth to a new reality for the pharmaceutical industry, giving rise to more efficient and streamlined processes as well as accelerated innovation in forms of decentralization, further digitization, and new and innovative trial design methods.

With these trends set to continue, the biopharma and biotech landscapes appear to be dotted with change and opportunity, which makes 2023 the perfect time to get into the system.

If you’re considering starting a career in the clinical research sphere, NeuAge Institute’s Drug Development, Clinical Research, Drug Safety and Pharmacovigilance program will provide applied and practical training that will accelerate your career advancement and leave you work-ready and confident to take on immediate roles in your desired industry. 

Read on to discover exciting industry trends that make now the best time to start a career in clinical research.

Decentralized Clinical Trials Remain the Way Forward

Decentralized clinical trials are a game-changer in the industry. They allow for a more patient-centric approach, as well as greater access to a broader range of patients, according to the FDA. The decentralization of clinical trials has brought ease, efficiency, and convenience to the process. Instead of being conducted in a single, central location, decentralized trials can be conducted at multiple sites, including patients’ homes.

Clinical trials can now be held in patients’ homes, as you’ll discover during clinical research training.

This not only makes it easier for patients to participate but also increases the diversity of the patient population, which is crucial for a robust trial. Decentralized trials are also more cost-effective, as they eliminate the need for patients to travel to a trial site, reducing the costs associated with patient recruitment, site management, and logistics. In addition, these trials can be completed faster as there are fewer delays and the trial process is streamlined.


As you’ll learn in clinical research courses, digitalization is playing a key role in the biopharma and biotech industries, and it is expected to continue to grow in 2023 and beyond. Electronic data capture, for example, is becoming more widespread, and companies are leveraging cloud-based systems and mobile technologies to make the trial process more efficient and streamlined.

Digitization will play an important role in your clinical research career.

This has led to an increased focus on real-time monitoring, as well as remote patient monitoring, which allows companies to collect more comprehensive data on the patient population that can be used to improve trial design and make the trial process more patient-friendly. Additionally, artificial intelligence and machine learning are becoming increasingly important in the industry as they offer new ways to analyze data, identify trends, and make informed decisions.

New Trial Design Methods

The biopharma and biotech industries are also embracing new trial design methods, including adaptive clinical trial designs. These trials allow for greater flexibility in the trial process, enabling companies to respond to changes in patient populations or the regulatory landscape. By preparing for specific, data-driven modifications at key stages during the trial, adaptive clinical trial designs add unprecedented flexibility to research procedures. This makes studies more effective, economical, and instructive, alleviating worries about the expense and logistical difficulties of clinical trials.

Additionally, using real-world data (RWD) and real-world evidence (RWE) is becoming increasingly important, providing a more comprehensive understanding of the patient population and their needs. This information can be used to inform trial design and make the trial process more patient-centric.

2023 is an exciting time to start a career in clinical research, particularly within the biopharma and biotech industries. Whether you are a recent graduate or an experienced professional, various opportunities are available, and the industry is expected to continue to evolve and grow. Through a focused, hands-on instruction style, NAI can equip you with the skills and knowledge needed for a successful clinical research career.
