The expedited way for Clinical Trial Applications...

CROSS is a Swiss based CRO whose objective is the implementation, co-ordination, monitoring and reporting of Phase I and II clinical studies performed in Europe.

Scientific links and preferential agreements have been established with highly specialised clinical centres for a reliable and timely volunteer and patient recruitment. Among these centres, Medical University of Vienna is the CROSS preferred clinical partner. http://www.meduniwien.ac.at/.

Vienna University Hospital is one of the European leading teaching hospitals with an international reputation in patient care and research, offering pioneering treatments and therapies in different therapeutic areas.

Thanks to this collaboration CROSS has access to a wide range of patient populations and to worldwide recognised experts in the different areas of medical research.

At the Medical University of Vienna, CROSS guarantees daily clinical monitoring performed by own staff permanently located in Vienna and a unique relationship with the Investigators and the clinical team of each trial.
