Designed Around You.

Chiltern is a leading CRO that listens to client needs in order to customize solutions for the Biopharma industry. With a 32 year history, Chiltern delivers globally with therapeutic expertise in oncology, respiratory, anti-infectives / vaccines, ophthalmology and dermatology. Chiltern operates two specialty units: Chiltern Oncology is led by physicians, scientists and clinicians to uniquely manage all phases of hematologic and oncologic clinical drug development; and Chiltern Source is a world leader in tailored relationships for FSP, resourcing and staffing solutions. Chiltern’s 2,200 engaged professionals work across 45 countries to deliver flexible, responsive solutions that are “Designed Around You”.


Over the past 3 decades, Chiltern has developed into a therapeutically aligned clinical research service provider, with global program management expertise, localized understanding of regulations, and relationships with leading researchers who provide our sponsors access to the necessary patient populations they require. Our services are integrated with our Collaborative Technologies suite to support our multinational platform.  Our clients have encouraged our specialization, program-by-program.  As a result, Chiltern has become more selective in the types of therapeutic programs we work on and that is also reflected in the people we attract into Chiltern. The result is a body of experience and an international team of professionals with a high level of expertise and leadership for select therapy areas – oncology, respiratory, ophthalmology, anti-infectives/vaccines and dermatology. With this we’ve developed a deep and complete understanding – mechanisms of action, patient motivations, international key opinion leaders, competing studies and therapies, eClinical innovations – for high success in our chosen focus areas.
