A Brief Word About Us

What makes us different:

We’re committed to quality and committed to meeting or exceeding your expectations.

Established to be your integrated Quality Assurance and Regulatory Compliance partner, with a laser focus on facilitating your clinical trial execution. Developing and supporting your quality initiatives from Day 1, the Harbor team is committed to quality through each functional service we provide.

We provide a hybrid of services which ensure all aspects of clinical trials meet quality assurance and regulatory standards – from study documentation, vendor oversight, and flexible resourcing throughout operations.

Our Process – Designed with Less Risk

No Matter how large or small the project, we’ve designed a process that leaves nothing to chance in meeting your compliance standards. We take an extra step in each project we take on, ensuring that every person on the project not only understand their scope of work, but also how their work will impact regulatory compliance standards and the safety of the patients.

Our Roots – Rich in Expertise

Although we were established only 3 years ago, our clinical trial management experience exceeds over 50 years. Ann Conner, the originating founder, brought on Ajay Sadhwani in April 2019 as an advisory role for the company. The combination of Ann’s entrepreneurial spirit, and their combined industry expertise and reputation, significantly accelerated the growth of the company.

In January 2019, Ann Conner proudly established Harbor Clinical as a certified Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).

Passionate Industry Activists – We’re Very Busy

More than association members, we’re actively engaged in influencing, learning, and supporting the drive to an even better industry.
