PHASTAR is a multiple award-winning, top 10, data focused CRO specialising in providing statistics, programming, data management and data science. With offices across the UK, US, Germany, Kenya, Australia and Japan, PHASTAR is a global CRO that is continuing to grow. In 2019, PHASTAR won the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise, following our impressive growth from a one-person operation to a global CRO within a decade. 

During the Covid-19 pandemic, PHASTAR has closed its offices and moved staff to work from home. Our number one priority is and continues to be everyone’s safety during these unprecedented and unusual times. Our systems allow uninterrupted, effective remote working and all our interviews can be conducted via phone and video calls. We have adopted remote onboarding and training processes. 


PHASTAR has established a Project Management Office to formalize the management of projects. The Program of work is divided into Portfolios and Project Managers will be expected to work in a Portfolio and potentially to manage a Portfolio. The projects involve coordinating our Statistics, Programming, and Clinical Data Management activities in addition to managing third-party vendors.
