ERA Provides Benefits to IIT Investigators and IIT Sponsors

ERA Clinical specializes in Investigator Initiated Trials (IITs), supporting both Investigators and Sponsors. We deliver the platform, people, technology, and performance to turn Investigators’ Clinical Trial Concepts into reality. ERA has more than 25 years of experience in pharmaceutical and medical device studies and can help Investigators meet the challenges of independent research and to experience the rewards of discovery and publication.

ERA Clinical brings increased value to IIT programs. We work closely with Investigators and independent of Sponsors, preserving the nonintrusive posture required by regulatory agencies. ERA works on behalf of IIT Investigators by providing vital support services that improve the quality of Investigators’ performance and maximizes the potential for peer-reviewed publications and scientific presentations.
