Swiss clinical trial patient recruitment specialist Clinerion is moving to new digs in its home base of Basel as its expansion continues and it ramps up employment.

The company said that it has been ramping up staffing in the last half of 2018 across all areas of the organization. 

The new offices are almost double the size of its previous location in Basel, which is considered a one of the pharmaceutical industry’s global hubs. Clinerion said that location is key for its analysts to tap into valuable insights from anonymized patient data throughout its network of hospital and data partners.
