Emeritus Research has been running clinical trials for over 25 years and has been a part of over 250 clinical trials. We have an amazing team of 30 staff with 6 medical doctors and a support staff of nurses, PhDs and medical science graduates. In 2019, we opened our new purpose-built clinical trial centre in Camberwell with amazing light and beautiful leafy surrounds. We began in the rheumatology field with Professor Stephen Hall our medical director leading the way, but have broadened over the last 10 years into dermatology, gastroenterology and general medicine trials.
