'Ligand is an ion or molecule that binds to a central atom to form a coordination complex'.


The company is connected with all participants of clinical trial like ligand. We hope that life of a new molecule means life of people.
Ligand Research provides a full range of service which is needed to perform clinical trials in Russia. The company is able to perform either the whole cycle of clinical trial or parts depending on the needs of the sponsor.

The core of the company is a team of professionals who have been working in the clinical studies area for about 20 years. The team members were among the first organizers of the early phase clinical trials in Russia. By the moment the team has organized more than 40 clinical studies of 1st, 2nd and 3rd phases.

The main principles of the organization of clinical trials are based on German business process which is distinguished by precision and punctuality. We use standard operation procedures similar to those which are accepted in the leading European research companies.
