We individually tailor each Phase 1 clinical trial design to expedite the development of your compound with a full risk mitigation plan.

Clinical Pharmacology Units (CPUs)

Phase I-II Clinical Trials. Inpatient or Outpatient. Our CPUs  and research centers yield success.

Phase I-II Clinical Research Sites

WCCT owns, operates, and partners with multiple clinical sites throughout the Southern California region:

Because we also manage studies at the CRO level, our clinical pharmacology units have top-down insight into the clinical process that has been further operationalized through the use of our electronic data capture tools to produce a more comprehensive level of data for our sponsors. Unlike most sites, ours have the business support needed to meet all goals in timelines, budget, recruitment and retention. Our unique approach to clinical study management yields success.
