CEO & Founder
Since our establishment in 2004, we have fine-tuned our business model to reflect validated best practices from the most highly regulated venues, which we have carefully tailored to suit local environments. We are proud of our project managers, most with terminal medical degrees, because they not only adhere flawlessly to study protocols, but appreciate the science behind them.
At Cromos™ Pharma we cannot think of a more rewarding job than that of accelerating development of new medicines that help improve and save patients’ lives. We have built an honest and hard-working CRO with a very simple philosophy – our social and business responsibility is to conduct ethical and high quality clinical trials while ensuring the safety of every patient and the integrity of medical data.
