Our values


Created in 1989, RCTs was the first university spin-off in France resulting from the know-how of the Clinical Pharmacology Unit of Lyon 1 University. It was one of the first CROs in Europe. This precedence and origins naturally give us knowledge transmission values and proven expertise. While fostering – on a daily basis – a team spirit and conviviality, the quality of our services based on transparency and trust positions us today as a benchmark CRO in France.
