“We combine our unique expertise, our project design creativity, and our passion to advance the success of our partners in delivering novel and game-changing hair & skin research solutions.”
– Dr. Marta Bertolini (CEO)
Monasterium Laboratory was founded in 2015 by Prof. Ralf Paus and within a short period of time we became one of the world leading CROs in the field of skin and hair research. Since then we have been executing confidential contract and collaboration research projects for our clients supported by a worldwide network of senior advisors, scientists, physicians, and consultants from academia and industry.
We are proud to announce that in March 2022 Monasterium Laboratory joined the QIMA Group, a global leader in testing, inspection, audit and certification services. QIMA has more than 40 offices and laboratories present in 95 countries, and a dedicated QIMA Life Sciences division.
Combining our scientific expertise in hair and skin biology with the QIMA’s growing life science division – built from the acquisitions of Bioalternatives, Synelvia and Newtone – provides the unique opportunity to expand our portfolio of top-of-the-line assays, biomarkers, and technologies for cosmetic, nutraceutical, and dermatological skin research allowing us to offer even more excellence in investigative dermatology and trichology services. These range from basic science over translational applied and contract research of high relevance for clinical applications, to efficacy and safety testing in clinical trials.
We will still operate from our basis in Münster and continue providing the high quality research we are known for.
