Our Story

Our story is a simple one of friendship, collaboration, and a vision for the future of clinical research.

In October 2021, Lakeland Clinical Trials Group and Southern Clinical Trials Group consolidated into one entity which operates as PCRN Ltd.

Mike and Philippa Williams from Lakeland Clinical Trials Group and Julia Mathieson and Simon Carson from Southern Clinical Trials Group have worked collaboratively and shared information since meeting each other at an investigator meeting in 2011.

PCRN have worked with Matt Clacy of Paratus Clinical since 2015. PCRN and Paratus will continue working together to advance clinical trials across private sites in Australia and New Zealand.

The PCRN Difference

Pacific Clinical Research Network has applied unique solutions to overcome the industry’s primary roadblocks. Network centralization, shared SOPs, technology and leadership has allowed us to reduce start-up times with centralized services, meet and exceed enrollment goals, maintain high-quality data, and ultimately reduce study costs for sponsors and CROs.

PCRN can offer sponsors and CROs sixteen private clinical trial sites across New Zealand and Australia, one centralized contract and budget negotiation, standardized SOPS across all sites, a rapid and centralized ethics process, and technology such as a CTMS with eSource, eDocs, and even a monitoring portal.
