A New Zealand Leader in Clinical Trials

As a leader in clinical trials we pride ourselves on delivering accurate, fast and independent clinical research data within a safe and high quality environment.

For Pharma and Biotech companies planning Phase 2 trials, placement of these with us in New Zealand can play a critical role in saving time and money through the avoidance of IND applications and our rapid start-up with short reliable timelines.

P3 Research Ltd is an independent clinical research company, and New Zealand’s leading provider of Phase 2 and 3 clinical trials. Our clinical research sites are capable of performing studies from small scale Phase 2 trials to large scale, longer term Phase 3 studies.

P3 Wellington has been recognised by MAGI as a Blue Ribbon site.
