Demand from our clients has encouraged us to expand to other countries in Western Europe with similar advantages: access to patients and high-quality investigator sites.
As we grow and expand our geographic reach we are determined to keep the characteristics of a small company: responsive, nimble, easy to work with, senior management involvement in operations and a commitment to the highest professional standards.
