I was very fortunate to have Franca set in my path at a time where she was most needed. I was in the process of setting up an Investigator initiated trial at my Institution, but was going through many obstacles that prevented it from moving along. The project was initial multicentered, but was then brought to one center only. One of the issue was missing documentation from a third party, and the second was the need for importer of record.


Groupe Cantini was extremely helpful, and accessible. Communicating with Franca, I learned a lot from her experience, as she was very knowledgeable about the process and key players in Investigator Initiated Studies. Groupe Cantini accelerated the process by helping with obtaining important documentation required for Ethics Committee approval.


Groupe Cantini was an important mediator in seeking out an independent third-party importer of record, and help with the negotiations of the contractual agreement. She was involved every step of the way ensuring the ethical, legal (contractual) and regulatory requirements were being met.


​Within a matter of a few weeks, Groupe Cantini was able to obtain the necessary approvals and arrange the logistics to ensure that the study get started, after it had reached a halt for several months. She invested a lot of time and effort in order to ensure success in setting up our study. Had I not had her help, the study might not have been possible, as she provided resources and alternatives of which I was not aware. I strongly recommend Groupe Cantini’s services for their knowledge, expediency and accessibility.


I had the pleasure of working with Franca on an independent research project. I can honestly say that the project would not have moved forward without the dedication and collaboration of Franca whose creativity and professionalism were an asset to the team.
