Growing organically enables us to stay focused on our mission AND our values; to create a unique culture where employees are part of a bigger purpose: to make a difference in the lives of millions today, tomorrow, and for years to come. Together, we improve lives.

To our Sponsors and Sites, we remain committed to our goal of Making the Complex Seamless®, to provide our uncompromising commitment to your clinical research and to provide the highest level of ethical standards and performance in our jobs, which translates to executing your trials on time, on budget.

History – Challenging the Status Quo

Dr. August Troendle, a noted medical doctor and scientist in the study of lipid-altering agents, saw an opportunity in 1992 to offer a more innovative way to conduct clinical trials on behalf of biopharmaceutical sponsors. His vision for a high-science, full-service CRO with expertise in specific therapeutic areas led to the founding of Medpace. The company capitalized on an unmet need in the life science sector with a model that delivers a much higher level of outsourcing that combines the expertise of noted industry medical doctors with regulatory and operational professionals who provide therapeutic and regulatory expertise for the most difficult clinical studies.
