Founded in late 2018 through a partnership with Pfizer and Bain Capital, Cerevel Therapeutics is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company working to transform the lives of people suffering from neuroscience diseases. As a new company with multiple clinical-stage products in development, Cerevel had the opportunity to create a new IT infrastructure without worrying about legacy systems, outdated equipment, or long-term contracts with vendors.

With over 10 drugs in development — including therapies to treat schizophrenia, epilepsy, and Parkinson’s in late clinical trials, Cerevel was looking for innovative strategies to manage numerous data streams coming in from multiple trials. Cerevel required a technology platform that could support the volume, variety and velocity of modern clinical trials utilizing multiple CROs and system providers. They also required a system that could map and standardize the data plus enable near real-time analysis to make better business decisions faster.


After evaluating a number of solutions, Cerevel selected eClinical Solutions’ elluminate Clinical Data Cloud®, which can ingest data from multiple sources and formats. elluminate’s out-of-the box connection with Medidata Rave and overall interoperability provided Cerevel with a path to scale and the flexibility to utilize different types of DCT providers.


elluminate allowed Cerevel to bring in large volumes of trial data from various CROs and systems, easily transform this information into a standardized format, and acquire robust analytics in near real-time. This gave them a high level of agility to make better decisions quickly, pivot when necessary, and spot problems before they could grow into more significant issues.
