Rapidly increasing market demand drives executive team expansion at pioneering virtual clinical trials company
NEW YORK, September 21, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Transparency Life Sciences (TLS), the first all-digital drug development services company, today announced that Donna Thornton has joined the company as Vice President of Business Development. She will oversee all sales efforts for the company.

John Watson, a member of TLS’s Board of Directors and formerly Chief Commercial Officer of Covance, commented, “I’ve watched Donna’s development at Covance and Oracle, and am delighted to have her join the team at Transparency Life Sciences. Her dual expertise in clinical services and technology should greatly accelerate the company’s growth and reach.”
