Central Nervous System Diseases

We are an academic contract research organisation (ACRO) devoted to executing clinical trials for CNS diseases in the most effective manner possible. We put science first, and it shows in every trial.

We approach every study with a mindset focused on solving clients’ challenges with tailored solutions and expertise specific to our CNS focus areas: Alzheimer’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), hearing loss (ENT), and epilepsy.

We leverage our unique triangle of Science, Networks, and Operational excellence to run efficient trials across our CNS areas of expertise. A prime example is the SAPHIR study.



In the SAPHIR study, we helped the Sponsor fine-tune their protocol and identify specialised sites to overcome recruitment challenges. We ultimately helped them find 120 patients at 24 sites and streamline their project’s path to completion.
