Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan and Linden Capital Partners have partnered on a platform, led by John Potthoff, with the goal of driving the clinical research ecosystem.

The initiative is centered around investing in companies and deploying technology to foster connections and collaborations among patients, research sites, pharmaceutical companies and the broader clinical research community. Potthoff, who is currently the chairperson of Elligo Health Research, has more than 30 years of leadership and operational experience in the life sciences and pharmaceutical services sectors.

“We see a significant gap in the industry and believe this strategic alliance will drive meaningful change and opportunity,” says Potthoff. “By integrating leading companies and leveraging advanced technologies, we aim to create a cohesive and interconnected clinical research environment. Recognizing the unique needs of each therapeutic and scientific area, we aim to streamline processes, enhance efficiencies, and foster collaborations that benefit all stakeholders, especially patients.”
