VelosBio worked closely with Marc Buyse and Elisabeth Coart. They were both very insightful, knowledgeable, innovative in their approach, communicative, and rapidly responsive with their development and review of documents. The support they provided was very valuable and our interactions with them were truly a pleasure. I would be more than happy to recommend IDDI to others.
