"Our new Phase 1 Clinical Research Facility is designed to attract best in class research for innovative and fast pharmaceutical product development. This expansion allows BPSI's continued growth within our strategic vision and will result in increased opportunities for our clients," said Renzo DiCarlo, CEO of BioPharma Services Inc.
The grand opening, involving Missouri Governor Jay Nixon, Columbia Mayor Bob McDavid, and leading pharmaceutical company delegates, validates BPSI's commitment to strategic growth and meeting client needs. The new Phase 1 facility complements BPSI's established US FDA and UK MHRA inspected Phase 1 Clinical and Bio Analytical facility in Toronto, Canada.
The Columbia site has successfully completed several clinical trials for BPSI clients and is already projecting increased utilization and demand in the near term. "We are excited about our growth opportunities in Columbia, Missouri and have already begun our expansion plans to expedite our 140 bed capacity," added Mr. DiCarlo.
"This new facility will help us meet our expanding client base's needs for increased access to BPSI services and allow BPSI to expand into unmet areas of expertise," said Ilan T. Rose, Vice President, Business Development. "BPSI has increased its bed capacity and geographic presence and has prepared this facility for future expansion due to continued increase in demand for our services."
