The Centre for Human Drug Research (CHDR) is an independent institute that specialises in cutting-edge early-stage clinical drug research. Combining innovative methods and technologies, state-of-the-art facilities, and talented, motivated researchers helps CHDR maximise their clients’ success. In addition, CHDR places the highest priority on their subjects’ comfort and safety, and they play an active role in helping educate the medical and clinical research communities.
At CHDR, we are driven by curiosity. Revenue is an important tool, but it is not our end goal. As an independent foundation, we can set our own by reinvesting our profits back into the organisation. Thus, we are guided by market demands and scientific principles, not by the demands of shareholders.
Our success over the past three decades has allowed us to create state-of-the-art facilities, hire ‒ and retain ‒ experts in their respective fields, and develop a safe, friendly environment for our study volunteers.
Our volunteers understand that they play an essential role in improving medicine and patient care. They trust our expertise, and they know that we take no risks when it comes to their health and safety.
We believe that it is every scientist’s responsibility to help educate student researchers and professionals. That’s why we openly share our knowledge through collaborations, teaching, and publishing. And of course, this is a two-way street: if we lack specific expertise, we can turn to our extensive network to find the right expert.
This freedom and flexibility benefits our clients. When a client comes to us for their clinical trial, they can be confident in the knowledge that the results will allow them to make the right decisions, maximising their likelihood of achieving success.
Innovation is a key component in the rapidly changing world of drug development. Each new compound, method, and process presents unique challenges and opportunities. That’s why we’re always at the leading edge of scientific and medical frontiers, using state-of-the-art methods and research tools.
At CHDR, we understand that efficient drug development benefits everyone.
We are situated in a custom built clinical research unit that was designed fit for purpose.
