After completing his medical education, Dr F. Harrison started working as a freelance contract researcher in 1987, and in 1990 he established the Harrison Clinical Research GmbH (HCR) in Munich. Growing continuously, the firm has evolved into the largest medium-sized contract research organization in Germany, which today operates subsidiaries in eleven European countries, the US and Israel. Projects in Asia, South America and Africa are supported by established cooperation partners.
HCR offers all kinds of services related to clinical studies: study protocols, submission of applications to ethics committees and authorities, selection and support of appropriate study centres (clinics, surgeries), data collection, statistical analyses and medical reports as well as quality assurance. If required, HCR can select and manage specialized subcontractors (for example, central laboratory, imaging systems). In Munich, HCR is running its own clinical pharmacology unit with qualified doctors who conduct clinical trials.
The company focuses on approval-related clinical drug studies in compliance with international standards for all medical indications. However, the portfolio also includes biomedical trials of medical products and food supplements.
