Cato Research is a contract research organization (CRO) that provides integrated services to pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device companies.
We specialize in complex development programs requiring innovative regulatory and clinical strategies, and we have experience implementing and conducting successful clinical trials and development programs.
As a midsize CRO, Cato Research offers a complete range of services with personalized attention and flexibility. The relationships we create with our sponsors produce positive, tangible results.
Dr. Allen Cato and Lynda Sutton founded Cato Research in 1988 as a contract research and development organization to help pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies design and execute successful development strategies. Cato Research provides sponsors with a cost-effective alternative to building an internal structure for research and development while contributing the highest quality scientific, medical, and regulatory expertise. From the beginning, Cato Research has been recognized for our knowledge of science and technology, as well as our ability to guide creative new products through the regulatory process. Cato Research has taken a controlled-growth approach, expanding its operations selectively across North America and the world.
