I was wondering if anyone had an idea of how to start an independent CRO, from scratch. I guess you would need to know how to run clinical trials, have a patient database, a doctor and statistician.

I have been contemplating this idea as well... You don't necessarily need to know of what you mentioned... You can hire someone who is an MD (if you were providing Medical Monitoring as a service). CROs do not have a patient database, as that would be against HIPAA regulations, but most likely would have an Investigator database. You would likely need some sort of data management, but not necessarily a statistician because Sponsor Companies would likely create the protocol and analyze the data on their end.

Good luck!
