iTakeControl video, virtual trial, and ePRO products and services expands Red Nucleus into clinical research space.

Boston, MA – March 4 2021 – iTakeControl (ITC), a leading provider of clinical operations and medical affairs technology and services focused on rare disease and specialty pharma, announces that it has been acquired by Red Nucleus, a premier provider of learning, performance, and process solutions for the life sciences industry.

With its track record of excellence, geographic reach, and resources, Red Nucleus accelerates ITC’s ability to scale its offerings in the use of video to collect clinical data, conduct remote clinical research visits between physicians and patients, and innovate the use of mobile platforms for learning and development and patient engagement to support long-term follow up.

ITC adds its expertise in clinical services for rare diseases, gene therapy, and disease registries to the Red Nucleus R&D suite of services in regulatory strategy, change, and operations for the biopharma industry.

Chris Jones, ITC CEO and co-founder, said, “We are thrilled by the fit between the two companies. Joining Red Nucleus launches the next chapter in our mission to deliver novel endpoints and to improve the nature of clinical research for both patients and sponsors. We can now do so with the global footprint, technology investment, and the caring, attentive culture Red Nucleus has created.”

“ITC is a wonderful addition to the Red Nucleus family. In this new era of virtual and remote clinical trials, ITC offers study sponsors and participants innovative technology to facilitate a more convenient, forward-thinking, and patient-friendly data collection approach. With its technology, ITC removes roadblocks so that in-need patient populations can participate in these critical trials in a way that is better for them. With ITC, our service and product offerings as well as therapeutic area coverage are strengthened,” adds Red Nucleus CEO Ian Kelly. “RN wants to make a difference for our clients and society, and ITC is a great way for us to do so.”

The transaction closed in March 2021.
