NBCD background

NBCD was established in 2006 as a division of the Nordic Bioscience group established in 1992 and was formerly known as Nordic Bioscience Clinical Development. NBCD was spun out of the Nordic Bioscience group to form a new organization including the Sanos Clinics, which are dedicated clinical research centers. NBCD currently consists of 25 employees based in Herlev, Denmark and 5 Clinical Research Associates based throughout Europe and Asia. NBCD has recently partnered with a US company to establish a cross-Atlantic cooperation providing a true global reach together with our presence in Europe and Asia. We perform all aspects of clinical trials such as data management, regulatory affairs, pharmacovigilance, monitoring and trial management.

NBCD is a niche Clinical Research Organization (CRO) specialized in clinical drug development of innovative medicines primarily within rheumatology, dermatology and Alzheimer’s disease. We focus our efforts on innovative clinical trials in few therapeutic areas, where we can provide additional value, based on our research-legacy in connective tissue-diseases such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. NBCD is a small, but growing operation, which means we rely on, and leverage our agility and efficiency. Every team member has broad responsibilities and we strongly believe in empowerment and giving our employees freedom to operate and to innovate.
