Industry Provider Profiles
Trio Clinical Research
Company Type Services
Trio is an innovative clinical research services company supporting the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device industries in their quest to bring novel products to market.
Building upon years of experience in the pharmaceutical CRO & staffing industries, Trio's founders created a unique business model to overcome the traditional challenges that are all too often experienced by biopharmaceutical companies when outsourcing their clinical trials. Our focus is on what we do best - clinical operations - while we seek complementary service partners that are the best at what they do. This model provides sponsors several advantages, including therapeutic alignment of the project team, engaged project team members, easily-scaled resourcing up and down, project team stability and the industry's strongest site relationships.
Trio has a unique approach for overcoming typical industry challenges.
Industry Challenge: Over commitment of resources
Trio’s Approach: Our business model provides an experienced flexible resourcing pool that allows us to support our clients without over committing or reallocating staff from one project team to another
Industry Challenge: High project turnover in the traditional CRO
Trio's Approach: By employing 'career' CRAs and allowing them to choose their project work, we have achieved one of the highest project retention rates in the industry
Industry Challenge: Experienced Clinical Research Professionals (CRPs)
Trio's Approach: Over the course of 18 years, Trio’s management team has cultivated a network of CRAs that we engage on a contract basis. Averaging 11 years of monitoring experience, our CRAs are therapeutically-aligned to each of our clients’ projects.
Industry Challenge: Inflexibility of traditional CRO full-service infrastructure
Trio's Approach: Trio’s structure allows us to provide flexible solutions based upon client requirements

- Time-on-site reduction of 27%
- Project team retention rate > 92%
- Query rate < 6%
- Repeat business rate > 91%

Our leadership team offers 100+ years combined industry experience. Veterans of the CRO industry, the leadership team brings a wealth of collective experience in the successful start-up and growth of innovative businesses in the life sciences industry. Trio's leadership is committed to offering a new paradigm in contract research services that overcomes traditional industry challenges.
Trio has more than 60 in-house full-time CRPs from which to staff our clients' projects along with an unparalleled network of 500+ independent contract CRPs with whom we work on a routine basis. Grown via a referral-basis only, our CRPs bring an average of 11+ years industry experience to our clients' project teams.
Trio has experience supporting phase I-IV clinical trials across a wide-range of therapeutic areas, including infectious disease, oncology, CNS, dermatology, respiratory, and cardiovascular to name a few.
Trio's culture has enabled us to build strong, long-term relationships with our clients and CRPs, some of which have spanned greater than 20 years. Our culture is rooted in the belief that our CRPs are as much our client as our pharmaceutical and biotechnology sponsors. We have strived to create a culture unique to the CRO industry where experienced professionals choose to work and where clients choose to do business.
For Trio, this means:
- Flexible, customized approach
- Direct communications
- Pursuit of excellence
- Clear channels of accountability
- Open & honest environment
- Senior management accessibility
- Collaborative client relationships
- Reward & recognize contributions
- Integrated, accessible team
Outstanding Reputation with Sites
Ask any of the multitude of sites with whom Trio has worked and you will find that Trio has a long-standing reputation for the highest commitment to clinical research and customer service to sites. Our CRPs have developed relationships with sites that Trio is able to capitalize on in order to motivate sites to achieve enrollment targets. And our CRPs are motivated too - because as contract CRAs - they only get paid when they monitor, and they only monitor when their sites are busy enrolling patients.
