History of MediciGlobal
With nearly two decades delivering outstanding results, MG is a world leader serving the global Life Sciences industry and a preferred provider to many biotech and pharmaceutical companies.
MediciGlobal is a patient recruitment-retention specialty firm serving the clinical trials industry. Liz Moench’s founding vision in 1991 was to create a company that addressed the primary cause of clinical trial delays: ineffective patient recruitment.
As an industry pioneer, Liz Moench introduced the first direct-to-consumer advertising programme for a prescription drug, and nearly a decade later launched the first patient recruitment programme for an oncology trial. The company continues to lead the industry in developing innovative patient recruitment programmes around the globe.
