Our History

Trial Runners, LLC was launched in 2006 by founders Patrick Healy and Jill Healy. Together they bring 45 years of clinical research management experience from within pharmaceutical companies. Familiar with the challenges biotech and pharmaceutical companies face, they saw an opportunity to improve upon the ophthalmology clinical contract research organization (CRO) industry. Their background and insight inspired them to enhance clinical research management through innovative solutions. Out of experience grew a philosophy focused on responsiveness, execution, expert project management, lower costs, and valued relationships.
