About us

ICRC-Wey­er was found­ed in 1993 and has con­tin­u­ous­ly increased their ser­vice, grow­ing from a spe­cial­ist con­sul­tan­cy for bio­sta­tis­tics, med­ical writ­ing and psy­cho­met­rics into an inte­grat­ed all-phase CRO with spe­cial focus but not lim­it­ed to clin­i­cal and med­ical device stud­ies to serve our clients in the most effec­tive way.

Along­side the fam­i­ly-based well-run man­age­ment there is a team of mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary spe­cial­ists, who are expe­ri­enced in a wide range of study phas­es and indi­ca­tions. Our team con­sists of biol­o­gists, biotech­nol­o­gists, clin­i­cal research pro­fes­sion­als, math­e­mati­cians, psy­chol­o­gists and bio­sta­tis­ti­cians among oth­ers. Our employ­ees are the most impor­tant resource and there­fore our dri­ving force. They have a close rela­tion­ship to the com­pa­ny, its goals and the ICRC-Wey­er management.

Meet the team

Our team is encour­aged to con­tribute to the company’s devel­op­ment and to active­ly increase their own poten­tial in the eco­nom­ic inter­est of our com­pa­ny as well as for their per­son­al evolvement.

We strive for an ear­ly recruit­ment of top-of-their-class future pro­fes­sion­als to extend and form our team.

Prof. Dr. Geerd Wey­er is the founder of ICRC-Wey­er GmbH and cur­rent­ly acts as Prin­ci­pal Con­sul­tant. In this role, he shares his vast aca­d­e­m­ic and indus­try expe­ri­ence and applies his core exper­tise in research method­ol­o­gy, study design, sta­tis­tics and psy­cho­met­rics to high-lev­el client projects.

This is in direct con­tin­u­a­tion of his work when found­ing ICRC-Wey­er in 1993, when he start­ed out with con­sult­ing ser­vices to sup­port clients from the phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal indus­try in their clin­i­cal study projects. Expand­ing from this basis, Prof. Wey­er, joint­ly with his son Johann Daniel devel­oped and led a team of clin­i­cal research pro­fes­sion­als who pro­vide a broad range of ser­vices in the domains of clin­i­cal and med­ical data man­age­ment, bio­met­rics, med­ical writ­ing and pharmacovigilance.

After years of the company’s con­tin­u­ous growth under dual lead, Prof. Wey­er hand­ed over the man­age­ment com­plete­ly to Johann Daniel in 2019, but remains deeply involved in all aspects of the company’s busi­ness, both as Prin­ci­pal Con­sul­tant and as senior partner.
