In a fast-moving and continuously expanding pharmaceutical industry, the need for efficient and well-documented clinical trials is evident. A Clinical Research Organisation (CRO) is a service organisation dedicated to the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, offering value-added services to promote the research and development process.
