About Us

Nor Consult, LLC is an independent full-service Contract Research Organization founded in 2005 with a focus on medical devices and combination products. Nor Consult has extensive experience managing global multi-center trials for industry (single-product to top-5 manufacturers), academia, and non-profit Sponsors. Our team specializes in spine and orthopedic research, yet we also manage trials and support clients across a wide variety of other therapeutic areas. This includes diseases of the central nervous, cardiovascular, and rheumatic systems, as well as preventive medicine, ophthalmology, bariatrics, and others. In 2019, we managed our first FDA Qualified Infectious Disease Program (QIDP) trial.

Our Collaborations

In order to maximize clinical study investments, we maintain strong relationships with the leading scientists and clinicians from medical centers across Australia, Europe, and North America.

We are a proud partner of one of Canada’s leading clinical research consulting firms, Neural Outcomes Consulting Incorporation (NOCI). Through our partnership with NOCI, we offer expert guidance on Investigational New Drug (IND) study applications for Phase 1 clinical trials, training and education opportunities for clinicians and study staff, development and validation of new outcome measures, and resources for Medical Science Liaisons (MSL).

Our Expertise

We strive for excellence in every phase of your clinical study. Our proficiency in developing advanced study designs using cutting-edge biostatistical methods, combined with efficient study management and tactical regulatory agency negotiation strategies, have earned us the trust of dozens of sponsors. Nor Consult, LLC, was the first CRO to introduce an adaptive statistical design approach for investigational device exemption (IDE) studies, which is the most efficient solution for assuring the smallest appropriate sample size for a study. Our success is maximized through the use of remote electronic data capture, secure image collection and archiving, and collaborative software platforms. To ensure data security, we retain the services of a leading SSAE-16 compliant Seattle-based data warehouse.

Nor Consult, LLC, has designed, managed, analyzed, and helped publish more than 30 clinical trials including: phase III, double-blinded, randomized, placebo-controlled drug trials in North America; FDA IDE trials; medical device and drug trials in Canada; medical device and drug trials in Australia; medical device and drug trials in New Zealand and medical device trials in Europe. In addition, we have worked on global Real World Evidence and international projects on the effectiveness of various medical interventions.

Our Company History
