We are your North America CRO


After years of experience in the United States using local CROs, SCOPE decided that the very best way to ensure continuity of our core values (commitment, flexibility, and quality) for our North American clients was to open an office with our own staff in the US.

SCOPE International chose Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania as the home for this office to benefit and contribute to the synergies in this emerging technology and biomedical hub.

Surrounded by several renowned universities and hospitals, the city provides innovative opportunities and feeds the many local life sciences companies with bright young minds.
After assembling a seasoned local team with expertise in drugs, biologics and medical devices, our office immediately started work on a rescue trial. The team has since worked with numerous sponsors in multiple indications on many trials while continuing to grow our office and remote teams. Our clinical development services span a wide range of therapeutic areas with a focus in women’s health, respiratory disorders, CNS and pain indications, immunology and hematology/oncology.
