Tranquil’s ultimate goal is excellence in the clinical trial process and bringing trustworthy products to patients.


A clinical research company dedicated to providing excellent client services and supporting clients in their development of new products.

Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.



Tranquil’s ultimate goal is excellence in the clinical trial process and bringing trustworthy products to patients.

Tranquil Clinical research was created to ensure that the entire clinical trial, device, and drug development process is conducted with ethics and the patient in mind first and always. The business model ensures a clients drug, device or investigational product in the clinical trial is adherent to the highest level of quality and integrity in the services we provide.
