Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Andrei Soran discuss the following:

  1. What does Novaseek do?
  2. Who are Novaseek’s end customers, and how do they benefit from using Novaseek’s CDNR platform?
  3. What motivates hospitals or labs to partner with Novaseek?
  4. It’s great that hospitals and clinical labs benefit financially and are able to participate in clinical research, but doesn’t this create a lot of extra work for the personnel?
