About us

10 years delivering human clinical studies

We are a CRO with an unique history. Atlantia was born in 2012, when a team of experts at the world renowned APC Microbiome Institute (UCC Teagasc collaborative SFI Funded Research Centre), identified a significant opportunity to create an innovative, food focused state of the art clinical trials centre in Cork, Ireland. See how our story has evolved since then.
