Cytel expands biostatistics software business in Barcelona, Paris

Cambridge, MA-based biometrics CRO Cytel opened up shop in two European locations this week: Barcelona and Paris. This brings its overall footprint across Europe, the U.S. and India to 800 staff in 10 offices.

Cytel offers clinical research software, and the new locations, particularly the Barcelona office, will enable it to build up its data science arm, according to a release. The expansion in Paris, where it already had an office, will bring together biostatisticians and statistical programmers.

“The development of a dedicated data science group is a natural progression for Cytel, as an established leader in the fields of biostatistics and data analysis,” strategic consulting vice president Yannis Jemiai said. “There is now a wealth of genomic, proteomic, diagnostic and electronic data available with the power to transform healthcare. We will apply our significant statistical know-how to the mission of unlocking its potential.”
