Full Service CRO, to deliver your clinical trial

About Us

Gaea is an agile, full-service, and digitally smart CRO. We have invested in the state of the art in digital software with Veeva and CRS Cube. We have been through the pains of computer system validation. We have a DPO and the best data security that an entity of our size can purchase.

We work in phases I – III, and provide services for all of Europe, Georgia, Ukraine, and USA.

While the big 10-  CROs have the reach for large trials there are many downsides for smaller sponsors from bureaucracy  and misaligned incentives. Unless it’s a large phase III  partnering with the right smaller CRO is a better fit. We smaller CROs  provide a personalized approach to drug development. We offer greater flexibility and nimbleness, allowing fast adaptation to change in study design or protocols.

Gaea wants to collaborate in our approach, to work closely with the sponsors to develop specific  solutions to  needs. It’s clear that drug development is falling behind in efficiency measured by money spent to products gaining regulatory approval. Our approach means a more efficient clinical trial development.

We are hands-on from the CEO. This level of accessibility means  greater transparency, as sponsors have direct line of communication with the team lead responsible for their trial.
We work with drugs: immuno-oncology, neurodegeneration, respiratory and infectious diseases, dermatology, and in the most complex clinical area: intensive care (ARDS , sepsis and shock ) 

We work in medical device clinical investigation which is catching up with the rigour of drug clinical trials. 

We have experience that we wish to share. The iconic elephant family depends on the senior female, the matriarch, who shares her experience for the family’s success. Gaea is Sharing our Experience to help sponsors.

We have been providing practical consulting in health care for 29 years: initially helping US companies work in Europe with trial project management, or trial oversight.

We moved into trial enrolment in slow enrolling ongoing trials in 2004 and as full service CRO in 2010.

In 2018, Gaea relocated from UK to Estonia, one of the most digital EU countries. There are only two things you cannot do in Estonia online- getting married, and  divorced.

Nigel Goodman

CEO at Gaea OÜ CRO and Clinical Trial Acceleration

I am passionate to bring products for significant diseases with unmet needs through trials in a fast effective way to quickly answer the clinical questions. I don’t believe using the largest CROs is always the cost-effective solution. The largest CROs must run a lot of trials to cover their cost base, though they take even the smallest trial these are small change. By necessity, risk-based monitoring becomes standard, face to face support to site staff is much reduced. Trials at sites are run by people, busy people, also managing patients in routine care.

In addition, my view is companies should all give back to the only world we live in – I choose to give back to sustainability here in Estonia, and education and conservation in Kenya.

Ukrainian patients need clinical research access more even than before and with the incredible engagement of research teams, we can perform clinical trials with fast patient recruitment, and minimum drop-out rates. To help us:  on 22nd March 2023 the UA Competent Authority reduced an expert evaluation of a clinical trial application from 47 working days to 30 calendar days and shortened the approval timeline from 5 working days to 5 calendar days, a very significant reduction in time to launch your trial in Ukraine. (MoH order No 190 of 31st of January 2023).
