From our Employees

“WCG is just the gold standard. The relationships that I’ve made I will have forever, with both my co-workers and with clients. I feel like I work for a small company but with the resources of a big company.”

“The exciting thing about the world of ethical review today is we’re on the cusp of the latest breakthroughs in medical research – like gene therapy and face transplants. WCG IRB is doing all of that now with the same passion and interest that we had 50 years ago.”

Currien MacDonald, MD,
IRB Medical Chair

“What I’m doing is really helping. I might not be doing the research itself, but I’m helping those who are reviewing ethical standards of research get their job done easier and faster, which then helps research get done better and faster.”
