the world’s largest RCO

We revolutionized the traditional model, creating an entirely new system that redefines what’s possible for you and your organization

RCO Vs CRO: Drug and Device Development Outsourcing 2.0

Traditional CRO push a full-service, "cookie-cutter" agenda, offering little compromise for the small Sponsor; ProPharma’s Research Consulting Organization RCO model leads with strategy to help de-risk programs and create tailored solutions to maximize probability of success.

ProPharma has transformed its organizational structure and solutions to put its clients at the very center. We offer a suite of bespoke consulting solutions across service lines and functional areas of expertise to span the full product life cycle. ProPharma embraces partnerships to reduce delays and drive consistency with dedicated and experienced strategists and program managers for end-to-end oversight.
