Our mission

You are a small Biotech or Medtech and you are going to start a clinical trial : Why should you choose ExperTrials instead of a traditional CRO?

Aurélie Weiss-Guimet, MSc, CEO of Expertrials

Our objective is to become an extension of your team by keeping a transparent and regular communication during each of your project steps.

ExperTrials is a clinical Contract Research Organisation (CRO) based in Lyon on a “human scale” founded in 2011 by Aurélie Weiss-Guimet and dedicated to startups in Biotech and Medtech with a 10-year experience with startups.
In the light of this extensive experience, we understand more than any other your need for flexibility and the ability to adapt with an optimal management of your budget. We know that your timelines are extremely tight in order to get the data needed to support the next round of funding and take the next step in the advancement of your clinical development programme.

Our expert team works closely with you to tailor the best solution for each project and to deliver clinical trials of the highest quality.
We provide complete solutions for clinical trials of any size, location and type, phase II-IV, drug or medical device and we have significant experience in both pre-approval and post-approval trials.


How does ExperTrials manage your budget and how you can save up to 40% compared to conventional CROs ?

With local expertise and focus on quality, ExperTrials ensures a high quality clinical trial management and on-time registration, while remaining within your budget.
In order to achieve this, ExperTrials has set up a new staffing organisational model with a flat hierarchy.

The leadership team is based at the headquarters in Lyon and our local teams consist of experienced Clinical Research Consultants across Europe, with additional partners in Israel, Canada, USA, Australia and Japan. In order to reduce the costs, ExperTrials does not have offices in each country and can therefore offer the most competitive prices compared to other CROs.

A high turnover and assignments of junior CRAs in traditional CROs can compromise your clinical study*

At ExperTrials, we work with experienced Clinical Research Consultants who have 10-20 years of experience in Clinical Research. These consultants will be assigned from the beginning of your clinical trial until completion. This will ensure that a high quality service is maintained throughout your trial.


In Clinical Research, Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are essential to be in compliance with Good Clinical Practice (ICH-GCP) and local laws.

At ExperTrials, we have set up SOPs to be in total compliance with the international and national requirements. From our previous experience working in conventional CROs, we realise that procedures are sometimes too heavy and lead to a reduction in efficiency which can compromise your project timelines.

Skip the heavy procedures of the traditional CROs. At ExperTrials, we ensure that the SOPs are compliant with ICH-GCP and local laws, shedding what is not strictly necessary and retaining what’s essential. 

Our goal is to be inspection-ready at all times.

With our innovative staffing organisational model, only one Clinical Research Consultant per country will be involved throughout your clinical trial and will be in charge of feasibility, regulatory submissions, monitoring from initiation until close-out. This model will ensure constant quality of the data collection compared to the traditional staffing model of traditional CROs.
