PRINCETON, N.J., July 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- WIRB-Copernicus Group® ("WCG")™, the world's largest provider of regulatory and ethical review services for clinical research, announced today that it has acquired Alliance Biosciences. Formerly a division of Richmond, VA-based Alliance Engineering, Alliance Biosciences was the leading biosafety and biosecurity consulting firm in the United States. With this addition, WCG's biosafety division – WCG Biosafety™ – will be able to manage the entire continuum of biosafety oversight, helping to ensure that research involving potentially hazardous agents and vectors complies with the appropriate safety and regulatory requirements from laboratory design and drug discovery through clinical testing and therapeutic application.

"Recent news headlines regarding the mishandling of smallpox virus, avian influenza virus, and anthrax bacteria by government healthcare agencies underscore the importance of biosafety oversight for the public as well as industry professionals," said WCG Chairman & Chief Executive Officer Donald A. Deieso, Ph.D. "With this expansion to our WCG Biosafety team, we can now oversee all aspects of the biosafety review process from building the laboratories and organizing materials to managing the regulatory review boards and ethical approval process for drugs in development."

"My colleagues and I are tremendously proud to join WCG, and to expand our service offering to create a unified, seamless biosafety solution," said Ryan Burnette, Ph.D., former director of Alliance Biosciences and newly-appointed vice president of WCG Biosafety. "Biological science is a driving force in our society.  As the promise of gene therapy increases, vaccine development expands, and the industry continues to explore new applications
