Our History

A great set of competences honed over decades
Since 40 years we at CRS tackle any type of clinical trial. CRS was established in 2006, based on the merger of three formerly independent Contract Research Organizations (CROs), backed by more than 40 years of experience in clinical pharmacology and the conduct of clinical trials phase I.

– IKP Institut für klinische Pharmakologie Kiel GmbH,
– PPN Pharm PlanNet Contract Research GmbH, and
– IKP Institut für klinische Pharmakologie Mannheim/Grünstandt GmbH.

From the beginning right up to the present they all meet the latest technical and logistical standards of clinical research. As of today, CRS comprises three Clinical Pharmacology Units (CPUs) in Germany with a total capacity of more than 160 beds. This makes CRS one of the leading European providers of phase I services, including standard PharmacoKinetic (PK) / PharmacoDynamic (PD) trial designs as well as special fields of expertise in a strictly standardized phase I environment.
