In addition to participating at DIA China, Quorum and Kinetiq representatives have been invited to visit Peking University to exchange insights about the functions of an IRB in the clinical trials field. “We are honored to meet with members of the ethics committee of the Peking University Health Science Center,” says Quorum CEO Cami Gearhart. “This is the premier health care center and medical school of China and we are grateful for the opportunity to share our experiences over 25 years as a central IRB dedicated to advancing the integrity of ethics review.”

It is one of the top medical schools in the country. It is both a historical pioneer and a modern leader in medical education in mainland China.
