Extensive Experience

Applied Clinical Services (ACS) draws on clinical strategic insights gained from more than 20 years of clinical and commercial experience in the different elements of the clinical evidence collection process including strategic clinical evidence planning, project design and management, site monitoring, and clinical evidence presentation. Through Annet Muetstege, ACS has built an extensive regulatory, clinical research, statistics, data-management, and reimbursement network.

Clinical Research Projects concerned products in the area of dialysis, gynecology, oncology, urology, and vascular.

Experience in clinical evidence presentation has been gained by authoring several scientific publications, presenting clinical evidence at key meetings, training of sites, marketing & sales teams, and organizing satellite symposia at international conferences.
