The early years

1997 - Company foundation

Company owner Dr. Burkhard Breuer founded proverum GmbH in Münster as a two-person company, with a focus on monitoring.


2002 - Phase 1

Our current CEO, Dr. Marion Breuer, founded the Center of Dermatology Excellence which, as a study site and SMO, is presently conducting clinical studies in dermatology and inflammatory diseases.


2005 - International partnerships

Dr. Breuer established the first international contacts with other partner CROs and laid the foundation for the global expansion of our company. In the meantime, operating as a full-service CRO, we are now offering the service of conducting clinical studies in Europe.
proinnovera GmbH

2007 - Foundation of proinnovera GmbH

Meanwhile, proverum GmbH is conducting clinical trials with a focus on innovative biological products. In order to satisfy the continuously expanding range of services, Dr. Burkhard Breuer founded proinnovera GmbH. The company’s name states what has proven true over the years which followed: proinnovera stands for innovative thinking and moving with the times.


2010 - Strategic partnerships

Continuing its growth, proinnovera entered into strategic partnerships worldwide with local CROs and companies which provide data management and statistics. The US CRO TKL Research Inc. company lent increasing importance to the partnership by its financial participation in proinnovera GmbH.

2012 - Wienburg 207

proinnovera relocated. Since March 2012, the company headquarters have been located in the former Wyeth Pharma building, thus guaranteeing the highest safety standards for our branch.  As a former employee of Wyeth Pharma, Dr. Burkhard Breuer himself worked here from 1995 to 1997.


2012 - Industrial cooperation partnership

Cumulative expertise in Westfalen: proinnovera was now working together with the Münster biotechnology company Cilian AG on approval of the recombinant, human flu vaccine Ciflu®, for clinical development.

Full-Service CRO

2016 - Global CRO

In the meantime, proinnovera has further developed into a global, full-service provider. Due to its continuous growth, the company now employs approximately 100 full-time staff members at its headquarters in Münster. An available workforce of 1,000 employees supports the global conduct of trials in more than 40 countries worldwide. In order to manage the company in a successful strategic and operational manner, Veronika Kunert, former Director of Clinical Operations, has been promoted to Company Management and manages the company’s day-to-day business as Chief Operating Officer.

Vision: Supporting Global Health

… this is the vision of both Dr. Breuers! With the experience that proinnovera has been able to accumulate since the company’s foundation and the creative team supporting Veronika Kunert, the two Dr. Breuers have established the company as an expert CRO for clinical studies in dermatology, oncology and inflammatory diseases. proinnovera is now heading consistently towards the position of global market leader in the conduct of dermatological trials.
