"As biotechnology's overall contribution to the health care arena continues to grow, so will the demand for outsourcing services, as new therapies move from preclinical to the clinical phases of drug development," said Melanie Bruno, PhD, Vice President Global Regulatory Affairs and Quality. "Tim Forsey's experience with this customer group and in the regulatory environment will be a tremendous asset to our biotech and pharmaceutical customers seeking to move their new compounds from discovery to market approval," she added.
