160 employees with a passion for clinical research
Independent, reliable, flexible

The Winicker Norimed GmbH, located in Nuremberg, is an independent, privately owned CRO with currently 160 employees.

Since the company was established in 1993, we consider ourselves a reliable CRO that values partnership, always meeting the ever-changing requirements of our clients.

With our skilled team, we perform clinical trials as well as non-interventional studies for manufactures of medicinal products, nutritional supplements and medical devices.

Another main focus of our work is market access and health services research.

Our top priorities


Our clients appreciate our competence and reliability as a partner they can trust. We do not make any promises we cannot keep.


Especially with studies spanning several years, it is impossible to plan everything in advance. In this context, the ability to react to unforeseen situations accordingly is crucial for success.


Our world and the conditions we work in are constantly changing. That is why, although we rely on tried-and-tested solutions, we do not shy away from thinking outside the box and trying something new.
