Former Synteract CEO Unveils Non-Profit Contract Research Organization, PHACT, to Help Eliminate Neglected Diseases in Developing Countries
Date:2/15/2012

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Ellen Morgan, former co-founder, president and CEO of Synteract, has launched a non-profit contract research organization (CRO), Public Health Alliance for Clinical Trials (PHACT).  Morgan is joined by two co-founding partners, Christian Sacher of Germany, and Yaw Asare-Aboagye, a native of Ghana.

The organization has capabilities in the U.S. and throughout Eastern Europe and opened an office in Dhaka, Bangladesh in November 2011, and last week in Accra, Ghana.

Initially the organization will also collaborate with local CROs in other developing countries as appropriate; future plans are to establish offices throughout Sub-Saharan Africa, India, and other parts of Asia. The goal is to support non-profit product development partners (PDPs) and pharmaceutical companies with trials in diseases such as malaria, cholera, dengue fever, tuberculosis, parasitic diseases as well as women's health issues.
