Our Staff

ICRA has a dedicated staff from different background and countries with strong experience in managing clinical trials. The chance we had to work in several research institutions as investigators and CRO as Clinical Research Associate is a great asset that allows us to expand our skills and helps us easily and pleasingly customize solutions to the many and varied challenges of sponsors.

In addition to their qualification and their experience, ICRA’ staffs are continuously trained in ICH-GCP, ethic, appropriate SOPs, protocols and related documents of any new study contracted.

ICRA’s staffs are really committed to the development of your products and takes total seriousness, accountability and responsibility to work as an extension of sponsor’s team. Such commitment leads irrevocably to brilliant success of projects.
