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 four 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 recently been recognised by MAGI as a Blue Ribbon site.

The staff at P3 are very friendly and helpful and made the experience easy to cope with. I wouldn’t hesitate to volunteer for any similar trial at P3.

I was invited to take part in a study of a new medication for pancreatitis. The study was for 3 nights and the staff made me feel very comfortable and put my mind at ease. I would put my hand up to volunteer again.

Barry S.

I have secondary progressive MS and participated in a year long drug trial at P3. It was a great experience. I was really well informed, so cared for during the weekly infusions and assessments and I would join another trial with P3 like a shot. Thank you especially Mary and Dean.
