AtoZ-CRO is a full-service Clinical Research Organisation (CRO) located in Overath near Cologne, Germany, with almost 30 years experience in clinical development and clinical study management. As a specialist for Germany, Europe, the US and India, AtoZ-CRO offers a broad range of professional services and partner solutions for international clinical studies with pharmaceuticals and medical devices.
Since its founding in 1984, AtoZ-CRO, formerly known as DR MED LENHARD & PARTNER, has formed a network of motivated local monitors and investigators in Germany, Eastern and Western Europe, the US and India and has since gathered extensive experience in national and international research in all important areas of therapeutics.
From its head office located in the scenic town Overath, Germany, AtoZ-CRO manages and coordinates clinical studies of Phase I through Phase IV for national and international clients. The company forms a team of 35 highly experienced and dedicated industry professionals and medical specialists ensuring high professional standards in clinical study management.
Originally focusing on clinical studies within Eastern European countries, AtoZ-CRO cooperates with a leading initiator of Phase I studies in Warsaw, Poland, within easy reach for test subjects and patients and in close proximity to a number of large hospitals.
In February 2007, Dr. med Karl-Peter Klein took over as Managing and Medical Director of AtoZ-CRO and led the activities of the company to new dimensions. Under his directions, AtoZ-CRO successfully expanded its services to Western Europe and the UK, and more recently overseas to the US and India.
AtoZ-CRO has since established close collaborations with leading professional partners in those countries, guaranteeing very short recruitment periods and highly motivated investigators and experienced staff at study sites.
Based on the company’s long-established international experiences in clinical trial management and cooperation with high-rated business partners, AtoZ-CRO is proud to offer a broad range of services covering all clinical research needs especially that of small and mid-sized pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device companies, from the planning stages to the final integrated study report:
