About Carnegie Clinical Research


Carnegie Clinical Research Ltd was established in 2010, by Hilary Birrell.

The company has more than 25 years of experience in Project Management and Monitoring of Phase I-IV Clinical trials, across an extensive range of treatment indications, study designs and pharmaceutical agents. We have worked on national and international trials with Pharmaceutical Companies, Clinical Research Organisations and Academic Clinical Trials Units

There is strong experience of Quality Management within the company, having participated in many audits and assisted clients with preparation for inspection by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

CCR Ltd is focused on providing a high quality, cost-effective and flexible service to all clients in clinical research.


We work in close partnership with sponsors, academic researchers and Investigators, using our clinical trial knowledge to assist research teams in producing high quality clinical trial data whilst ensuring patient safety.

We are a small company benefiting from a lack of tiers of management, which results in very quick response times to issues arising.

Our approach to client and sponsor management often results in repeat business. We have several long established clients and also always welcome approaches from new clients.


We work closely with a large network of Academic Clinical Trial Units in Scotland, England and Scandinavia.

We contract the services of experienced project managers and monitors and have access to a wide international network of experienced researchers and study personnel. We are experienced in assembling teams of personnel to match sponsors individual study requirements.

Please get in touch to discuss your individual clinical trial requirements with us.
