Vivienne van de Walle, MD, PhD, CPI, FAPCR is co-founder and owner of PT&R (PreCare Trial & Recruitment), an independent research site in The Netherlands, and has been an advocate for virtual site visits over the past five plus years. SOPs had been drafted; internal discussions were ongoing. And yet, there was little acceptance for this approach by sponsors, CROs and governments, until now.   

In this interview, van de Walle discusses the impact COVID-19 has had on her site, clinical research as a whole and the need for virtual trials.
