Welcome to Frontier Science (Scotland)
Collaboration – Education – Independence
An independent, not-for-profit research organisation, Frontier Science (Scotland) (FSS) collaborates with researchers to ensure high quality and ethical conduct of clinical trials. Established in 2001, Frontier Science (Scotland) is based in the Cairngorms National Park in the Scottish Highlands.
Frontier Science is committed to ensuring the integrity and validity of clinical trials, maintaining independence from the trial sponsors in key aspects of the study conduct. FSS is a collaborator, providing input into trial design, conduct and analysis, and believes that the results of any trial should be made available to the public through publication in peer-reviewed journals or at presentations at scientific meetings. Education of our own staff, the wider research community and the general public is a key aspect of our mission. We believe in being flexible and adapting procedures to address the requirements of each individual study.
