About us

Biotrial, a mid-size Contract Research Organization (CRO), was founded in 1989.

As a full-service CRO, Biotrial offers innovative solutions to pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, from Preclinical to patient phase studies: covering phase I, Biometrics, bioanalytical, and Core Lab services.

Initially a single man’s idea, Biotrial has since evolved into a global enterprise.


History of Biotrial

Biotrial was created by Jean-Marc Gandon, Pharm D. His purpose was to help pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies develop their drugs with a trusted subcontractor.

The idea of creating a CRO came during his last year of pharmacy studies in the US. The aim was to provide high-quality services to Pharma and Biotech companies with tailor-made services to develop and test new therapies.

Since 1989, Biotrial has evolved from a visionary’s idea into a thriving global company with a large and dedicated workforce spanning multiple countries.
