Kudos Health and the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak

Kudos Health and the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak

To all our panel members, clients, connections, friends and colleagues, we wanted to touch base with all of you and keep you updated on what is going on at Kudos Health. 

Our two offices in London and Berlin are still operational. Almost all of our employees are currently working from home with a few still working from the office. 

We have started four new projects in the last three days and we intend to keep working unless respective governments instruct us otherwise. 

We believe that it is important to make the best of the situation and to keep busy. 

Working on projects also helps us support the WHO’s COVID-19 Response Fund. We are donating the equivalent of Pound/Euro 5 per interview we conduct. This has already been implemented on all of our surveys.

It seems like this situation will last a long while and we at Kudos Health have decided to be pragmatic about it. Early research suggests that effected people build resistance to the virus and are hopefully protected when the next waves come. There will be vaccines at some point but we all know how long it can take for them to be available to everyone. The good news is that there are first clinical trials. 

Until there is a solution we all have to be vigilant, follow WHO’s instructions and look after each other. Be kind!

We will keep you updated on projects and where we stand.

Thank you everyone for all your support! In the meantime, stay safe and stay healthy!

Life Sciences: From discovery to pharmaceutical and biotech products

Life Sciences is an exciting and fast-moving industry. Some of the world’s most innovative organisations, from universities, researchers, biotech and pharma giants to start-ups, are working furiously at a rich seam of innovative technologies to produce advances that ultimately make life better for everyone.

Kudos Research has an unparalleled level of data-collection experience in the field of Life Sciences and offer a holistic, solutions-focussed end-to-end services to support the research process throughout. As such, we are well positioned as the leading data collection specialist for this audience globally.


Our detailed grasp of the processes for the discovery, development and commercialisation of new pharmaceutical and biotech products, enables us to accurately identify and engage with experts at each stage of the process. At the research stage in the process, we help clients conduct a dialogue with researchers, lab technicians, lab managers, and procurement personnel in academia, bio-pharma research, commercial/biological research, government, and pharma research.

Testing and Analytics

Once the primary research has been done, thorough testing helps to ensure that the new product really will fly. Understanding commercial opportunity is like learning how a new molecule affects an organism. Just as the novel technology has been proven physiologically, so its performance in the wild must be properly tested and understood.At the testing stage of the process, we talk to lab technicians, QA/QC technicians, lab managers, and procurement in the following sectors - environmental, food & beverage, forensic, chemical & industrial, government, cosmetics, medical labs, diagnostics and testing.


Successful commercialisation all the way from up- to downstream of bioprocesses means working closely with pharma/bio-pharma manufacturing scientists, heads of pharma/biopharma manufacturing, pharma/bio-pharma management, and pharma/bio-pharma procurement in bio-pharma manufacturing, bio-pharma research & development, pharma manufacturing, and pharma research & development.

Kudos Health: Life Sciences Panel of Experts

We have panels of life sciences experts and stakeholders in the US, China, Japan, Korea, the UK, Germany and France. Our panel members stand ready to contribute their insight at any stage. We offer every conceivable methodology for fieldwork, whether quantitative, qualitative, or a mix of both.

We use market-leading CATI and CAWI technology where appropriate to help the research run smoothly and efficiently. We can go in via the phone or online or mixed mode and screen sharing.

Our experienced moderators can conduct depth interviews or recruit for them to be conducted by others.Our work includes online quantitative and depth interviewing over the telephone from our international call centre in London.

Some projects combine these two methodologies. We have conducted depth interview projects involving online max-diff exercises and/or concept testing using screen-shared materials. We have even run recruitment drives to full day workshops.

KudosHealthDay -Getting Patient Groups Ready for GDPR -Free to attend

#KudosHealthDay -Getting Patient Groups Ready for GDPR

This is a free invite only event for patient groups, please contact: if you want to be included.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most significant change to data protection in the UK and EU since 1995. Designed for the digital age, with strengthened individual rights and greater business accountability, it will impact organisations of all sizes processing personal data.   

The new regulation will be enforced in all EU Member States from May 2018 meaning that compliance must be a top priority for UK-based organisations.  It’s vital that patient organisations are ready to meet the new obligations and responsibilities that the GDPR will bring, especially in light of decline in public trust if data protection responsibilities not met as well as the more robust enforcement regime under the GDPR.

Our GDPR expert speaker will talk about the impact of GDPR and how organisations need to prepare for this important change of data protection legislation. 

She will offer advice and tips on best GDPR practice. Her presentation will take around 60 minutes followed by a Q&A session of around 30 minutes. 

Volker Balk, Head of Kudos Health will advice on what to do next and where to find relevant information for patient groups to achieve compliance.

Findacure will provide an update on their important work. Findacure is a UK charity that builds the rare diseases community to drive research and develop treatments.

The workshop is hosted by Kudos Health and free to attend. This event is to support and empower patient advocacy and patient groups.

Light refreshments will be provided and the building has disability-friendly access. The closest station is Stratford which also has disability friendly access.

This is a free invite only event for patient groups, please contact: if you want to be included.
