Who We Are

We are a team of passionate people from a variety of backgrounds supporting research agencies, pharmaceutical companies, and medical device companies with their research needs in the Japanese market. The majority of our staff are bilingual in English & Japanese and more importantly bicultural – meaning we understand your needs and know how to communicate well.

We pride ourselves on conducting projects from start to finish seamlessly where communication throughout the project is clear and frequent so you are always up to date with what is going on from recruitment progress to the end deliverables of reports or transcripts.

Our reporting is all in native English involving deep analysis with well thought out conclusions and recommendations – not merely a replay of what physicians, patients, or caregivers said – although you will also know that too!
