SPRI Company History

In 1972, the Social Psychiatry Research Institute was founded to support and conduct clinical research for antidepressant and anti-anxiety drugs. More than 40 years later, SPRI continues to use its expertise in CNS trials, as well as oncology, infectious disease and endocrinology research, to help biopharmaceutical companies design and execute global clinical trials.

From New York Clinical Site to International CRO

From our founding in New York over 40 years ago, SPRI has grown from a small network of clinical sites to an internationally respected contract research organization. SPRI began CRO operations in 2003 with the addition of a strategic office in Kiev, Ukraine. Today, we employ nearly 80 of the industry’s most talented clinical research professionals at our offices in the United States (New York, NY and Research Triangle Park, NC), Ukraine, Russia, Georgia and Belarus.

With headquarters in the U.S., operations in Eastern Europe and strategic partnerships in Western Europe and Australasia, SPRI Clinical Trials offers our clients several key advantages — including unique insight, local regulatory expertise and access to our established relationships with international clinical sites.
