Cmed to Expand US Geographical Presence Opening New Offices in Boston and California

HORSHAM, England--Cmed Group announces revisions to its US geographical presence that will bring closer alignment with the needs of its growing client base in Boston and California. A new office is being opened in Massachusetts Avenue, Boston, and similarly a new office location is being established in the Bay area of San Francisco.

These new offices will compliment Cmed's US operations hub which over recent years was moved from New Jersey to Durham, North Carolina, and which expanded into larger office premises in November 2012. Today Cmed also announced its Durham office will become its US Headquarters. Support functions such as Finance and Human Resources will transfer from its New Jersey based office, which will be closed. Operations and ongoing projects will not be affected.

Cmed Group CEO, Dr. David Connelly said "our new US locations are in response to listening to our clients and it aligns Cmed more closely with two pre-eminent sites of biotech and pharma development. Having invested heavily in recent years in building our expertise and capabilities in developing and delivering early phase clinical development, it seemed a natural progression to forge even closer links with our clients in these areas as we strive to help them execute their clinical strategies as quickly and as cost effectively as possible."

Through the coupling of full service trial delivery teams and trusted technology, Cmed has a proven track record of helping the biopharmaceutical industry design and deliver both innovative and traditional early phase I to IIb clinical trials, as well as increasingly being asked by clients to take on their phase III projects.

Cmed has seen accelerating demand for strategic advice and drug development consulting, both in terms of study design and CDP development, and therefore has significantly expanded its in-house Drug Development Consulting, Regulatory & Medical Affairs Group, as well as expanding its other operational capabilities.
