Company Summary

Why start a new company in the highly competitive Contract Research Organization (CRO) industry? We seized an opportunity to build a next generation CRO from the ground up. In 2011, we opened a laboratory facility with ground breaking technology designed to help pharmaceutical and biotech clients bring new drugs to market. Our technology and processes enable us to deliver drug development research data to clients faster than any other CRO.
