FARGO, N.D. -- Novum Pharmaceutical Research Services, a leading contract research organization (CRO) serving the pharmaceutical industry in Phase I-IV clinical trials and related services, announced today that it is opening a new clinical facility in Fargo, North Dakota.  Novum's Fargo site will begin recruiting study participants this month and conduct research studies starting in November, 2013.

Novum is opening the Fargo clinic to accommodate its growth and to continue meeting its clients' needs and timelines.  "Fargo represents the perfect opportunity for Novum and our clients, providing us with added capacity, committed study participants, and a strong local team of clinical and scientific talent," said Christopher H. Chamberlain, Novum's Chief Executive Officer.

The Fargo clinic will open with a strong focus in dermal and transdermal research, building upon Novum's decades of experience in these areas. In 2014, Novum will continue to add early phase research services in Fargo as it also broadens its offerings across all Novum sites, including its clinics in Las Vegas NV, Houston TX, and Pittsburgh PA.

Earlier this year, Novum announced that Alan Copa, Pharm.D., joined Novum's leadership team to oversee its Early Phase expansion, which includes the new Fargo site.  "This is an exciting time for Novum," Copa said. "Novum's Fargo clinic will operate with the high standards of safety, quality, and integrity that our clients have come to expect", he added. The Fargo clinic will operate under Novum's existing standard operating procedures to ensure consistency across the company's Early Phase sites.
