ikfe GmbH: Comprehensive Services for Clinical Research

The institute for clinical research and de­­velopment in Mainz (ikfe GmbH) was founded by Prof. Dr. Dr. Andreas Pfütz­­ner (MD, PhD) and partners in 1998 ini­­tially with the departments Clinical Re­­search (CRO) and laboratory. In 2000 the acad­­emy was founded and in the late summer of the same year, ikfe’s own clinic was established to complete the full ser­­vice portfolio. Since 2004 ikfe has also performed basic research in the area of phar­­­macogenetics and in De­­cem­­­­­ber 2006 here­­fore obtained a Price of Inno­­vation of the Federal State of Rhine­­land-Palatinate in this area as well as 2009 the award “Hidden Champion Mainz” in the category “Worldwide”.

ikfe offers first class services in both the area of clinical research and scientific mar­­keting. It is specialized in the planning and support of pharmaceutical prod­­­uct de­­­­velopments and in the organ­­­­i­­sation and performance of scientific train­­ing pro­­grammes for managers, sales re­­pre­­­senta­­tives and other customers. From Summer 2013, the extra-occupational Master’s pro­­­­­­­­grammes “Clinical Re­­search” will be offered in co­­­operation with the European University of Applied Sci­­ences ­(Europäische Fach­­hoch­­schule, EUF).
