The EMMES Corporation, organized in 1977, is a privately owned Contract Research Organization (CRO) located in Rockville, Maryland, just outside of Washington, D.C., a short distance from NIH, FDA, and the Route I-270 biotechnology corridor. EMMES is dedicated to providing statistical and epidemiological expertise, computer systems development, data management, study monitoring, regulatory guidance, and overall operational support to clients engaged in clinical and biomedical research.
EMMES employs a full-time staff of over 350 people. Half of our employees hold advanced degrees. One-third of that group have the highest degree awarded in their fields, typically a Ph.D. or M.D. The balance holds M.P.H., M.S., or M.S.N. degrees. The largest number of advanced degrees are in the areas of statistics, epidemiology, and in the biomedical and health related fields of cell and molecular biology, physiology, biophysics, genetics, cell and developmental biology, pharmacology, microbiology, nutrition, and psychology. Almost all of our employees hold at least a B.S. or B.A. degree in the natural or physical sciences, engineering, computer science, or business administration. Our staff includes individuals who are multi-lingual in German, Russian, Farsi, French, Greek, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and several dialects of Chinese and Indian languages.
