Mr. Wallace is an industry innovator who frequently writes and speaks about myriad topics relating to patient recruitment and patient retention.


Gregg Sweet, Vice President, Strategy and Development

Gregg joined ICTS as one of its founding partners after having successfully operated his own firm since 1995, Clinical Communications Group, a patient recruitment company. He is responsible for the development of ICTS products and client strategy, working with sponsors to develop and implement integrated tactics to increase the efficiency of clinical trial investigator meetings, patient recruitment, enrollment conversion, retention and post-marketing programs.

Gregg has successfully planned and executed over 150 patient recruitment programs including international, full-scale centralized recruitment programs involving over 20,000 subjects. He works closely with sponsors to identify processes that can decrease cost and increase operational efficiency by providing a flexible, zero-base planning method focused entirely on the specific requirements of the protocol.


Council of Medical Advisors

ICTS has nurtured and developed close relationships with several highly qualified clinical professionals.  We call upon these experts for project assistance when their particular expertise can provide invaluable help to our clients.  A complete understanding of the most intricate details of the study processes and demand high quality patients to ensure high quality data is essential.  To that end we have formed a Council of Medical Advisors to enhance the quality of ICTS work and to provide our clients with access to some of the industry's top professionals in the global research community.


Each of the members of the ICTS council has vast experience in clinical research and serves to augment our services by either leading a specialized project such as a Medical Science Liaison (MSL) program, providing medical content for communication pieces or advising on clinical challenges and operations.
