The FTH is a CRO with 25 years of experience, focused on its clients, with multidisciplinary work teams. Supported by one of the largest groups of clinical pharmacologists in Spain. Our  mission is to achieve each and every clinical trial on time, as cost-effective as possible and with the highest quality, guaranteeing their success. Through our Teófilo Hernando Foundation Institute (IFTH) and its close relationship with different Spanish universities, in particular, with the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM), we have access to a wide network of hospitals in Spain.

We prioritize the well-being and safety of the patient, offering comprehensive management of services as CRO. Our Clinical Research Department works with the Pharmaceutical Industry in conducting clinical studies in various therapeutic areas for the development of new drugs and medical devices.
