Premier Research Helps Fight Childhood Cancer One Cup at a Time

Premier Research’s staff across the United States took part in National Lemonade Days on Friday June 8, 2012. Employees in Austin, Phoenix, Philadelphia, Quincy and Salt Lake City set up lemonade stands at their office locations to raise funds for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF).

ALSF emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters across the country carrying on her legacy of hope. ALSF has raised over $50 million for childhood cancer, and funded more than 200 research projects at over 66 institutions.

Premier Research brings to bear an extraordinary depth of experience, insight and capability in pediatric clinical research. Premier Research acquired extensive—and diverse—pediatric expertise during six years as the sole Coordinating Center for the Best Pharmaceuticals for Children Act (BPCA). Premier Research pediatricians and pediatric specialists have conducted nearly 100 trials and consulting projects, and are ready to help biopharmaceutical companies overcome the pitfalls associated with pediatric patient recruitment, regulations and study requirements, from initial strategy through final submission. It’s what we do. Best.
