Following in the steps of so many contract research organizations and biopharmas, Worldwide Clinical Trials is moving its HQ to Research Triangle Park in North Carolina.

The CRO is moving from Morrisville, North Carolina, to Frontier RTP, a so-called innovation campus located in the heart of Research Triangle Park.

Frontier RTP is a growing hub for STEM workers and houses some of the world’s biggest CROs. “The location offers meeting and office spaces, educational opportunities, and networking events that encourage collaboration and are tailored to growing businesses, like Worldwide,” the company said in a statement.
