Concentrics Research is a unique CRO specializing in late-stage (Phase II-IV) research. With nearly 30 years of expertise in clinical research and healthcare marketing research, we excel in creating and executing custom research to meet your needs.
At Concentrics, we’re centered around you -- your specific drug or device, your specific research needs, your commercialization goals. No two studies are exactly the same. Our staff of 100 specialists surrounds your team and your drug/device with concentric circles of knowledge, experience, service, and performance excellence.
The discipline of good science combined with creative and strategic thinking provides a powerful framework. We start with your goals in mind and work backward from each of them to assure that we have built innovative and effective solutions. Often these goals can be integrated to save time and money.
At Concentrics, we look at your needs from a unique perspective in order to find creative solutions. Thinking about your goals from every angle allows us to explore a variety of possibilities.
Our company is unique, in that we have two distinctly different and separate divisions that work closely together. The two divisions, Clinical Research and Healthcare Marketing Research, operate independently. However, we create an integrated team when the project requires elements of both disciplines. The result is a powerful team for our clients. Our integrated teams understand how to capitalize on early market insights, which provides the framework necessary for successful product commercialization.
