Research & Development RA SA CRO is a full-service contract research organization based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It was founded in 1993 as a family enterprise, by Santiago Liuboschitz, MD and his son, Pablo Liuboschitz, BsC.
Research & Development CRO has been operating in the Latin American market for more than 20 years. Considering that the first regulation for clinical trials in Latin America was approved in 1997 in Argentina, it is easy to see that Research & Development CRO has been active and present since the very beginning.
