ClinResearch, which will now operate under the name UBC ClinResearch, will be a centerpiece of UBC's adaptive design clinical trial offering and will deliver a full service, global solution for pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device companies seeking to capitalize on the benefits of adaptive design in their clinical development strategy.

"We are thrilled to welcome ClinResearch to the UBC family," said Ethan Leder, CEO of UBC.

They are innovative and science driven, and have built a world-class organization with a track record of developing and executing technology solutions that we plan to introduce aggressively to our growing base of sponsor and CRO clients."

"The interest in adaptive design is accelerating from the early adopter to the rapid growth stage. We are excited to be joining an organization with the resources to allow us to capitalize on this opportunity," noted Michael Fischer, PhD, founder of ClinResearch. Fischer added, "We are moving forward with expansion plans to fulfill demand on our global projects with UBC and anticipate growth in Cologne, as well as in our offices in Russia and the Ukraine to benefit our clients."
