TASK Eden is a newly established, multi-discipline pharmaceutical research site, located along South Africa’s world famous Garden Route.

George, a close knit coastal city, has expansive first world infrastructure, particularly in the private and public health sector. This is ideally complemented by an independent research site like Eden, who works closely with both sectors to ensure an excellent standard of care to all trial participants and timely recruitment of volunteers.

Despite being newly established, TASK Eden has completed a COVID-19 study and is currently engaged in two more. In addition to this Eden is also running trials in various other therapeutic focuses including heart disease, chronic kidney disease and wound care.
