Contract research organizations (CROs) provide sponsors (pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device companies) with research management services. These services include drug and disease coding, validation programming, product development planning, clinical trial management, drug discovery, manufacturing, laboratory and bioanalysis services. By outsourcing these services to a CRO, organizations can save resources in developing their new drugs and ensure that their staff is trained to carry out thorough research. CROs also review safety data from human trials to ensure that clinical trials are conducted in accordance with regulatory requirements, including good clinical practice (GCP) guidelines. Additionally, they help pharmaceutical companies recruit volunteers to participate in the trial by providing qualified volunteers.
