“BBA is excited to join Factory-CRO’s worldwide group as it will allow us to expand our comprehensive service offering to our clients,” said Lauren Baker, PhD, President and CEO of BBA. “The alignment of Factory-CRO and BBA’s core values and approach to engagements combined with our collective therapeutic competencies ensures that our clients now have improved access to our global clinical trial execution resources, and our regulatory and medical expertise.” Dr. Baker then added, “We are able to fully support our clients as their needs evolve and they strive to help patients globally.”
“We are honored to have the BBA team join the Factory-CRO Group,” said Dirk Meijer, MD, MSc,PhD, Factory-CRO CEO. “BBA’s ability to provide CRO/Consultative service in North America was a missing link in our global offerings.” Dr. Meijer then added, “Our clients have consistently asked us to expand our offerings in North America. This merger allows us to provide our specialized expertise and a continued commitment to the highest level of customized service to a larger audience. Now we are the only Medical Device and Medical Technology CRO that offers services in United States, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
