CERC Europe

The CERC is a unique Contract Research Organization based in Massy, France, and presided by six medical directors: Marie-Claude Morice, Philippe Garot, Dragica Paunovic, Pieter Smits, Antoinette Neylon, and Davide Capodanno.

The CERC was conceived and founded by physicians with wide experience in clinical research. Their renown and expertise in this field have enabled them to generate optimal interaction with their industrial partners and other medical research teams focusing on the development of innovative techniques, concepts and treatments.

The prestigious members of the CERC’s Medical Advisory Council provide unparalleled guidance and expert support in a broad range of clinical trials dedicated to the assessment of interventional coronary and peripheral revascularization, structural and valvular heart disease treatments and adjunctive pharmacology.

The CERC has an excellent track record in regulatory guidance, trial design, global study management and monitoring, CEC/DSMB coordination, core-lab activities for pre- and post- market drug and device trials.

The CERC was created with the aim of establishing a reputable high-quality dedicated CRO in Europe. Its objectives are to underpin European clinical trials and academic leadership, act as a global CRO and support young scientific leaders.
