History of CRO Dr. Kottmann

The Clinical Research Organisation Dr. Kottmann is a full-service CRO. It was founded in 2008 and has been continuously developing ever since. Since the name change in 2017, we have been expanding very strongly: While initially clinical studies were conducted in the German-speaking region, we have been offering full service throughout Europe since 2017 and additionally in the Middle East and Africa since 2019.

We have many long-standing cooperation partners such as universities, professional societies and manufacturers of medical devices and pharmaceuticals with whom we have planned numerous projects and with whom we always see ourselves as consultants for the planning and implementation of clinical studies. After 14 years of clinical experience as a specialist for internal medicine and cardiology, Dr. Kottmann can provide many professional and scientific impulses in addition to statistical consulting.

Our CRO is interested in long-term cooperations and also follows the requirements of small and medium-sized companies. Many of our clients are medical device manufacturers, whom we support with advice and assistance in implementing the requirements of MDR and carry out both clinical evaluations and clinical studies.

We are continuously inspired by innovations and realize new ways of doing research projects together with our partners. We have a high potential of long term academic staff with excellent expertise that we can bring to your project. This enables us to implement even large projects promptly and optimally.
