Nutrasource Pharmaceutical and Nutraceutical Services (Nutrasource), a global full-service contract research organization (CRO), is pleased to announce the establishment of an office in North Bethesda, MD. This location is strategic based on proximity to a series of major FDA (U.S. Food & Drug Administration) offices. The office will be managed by Kara Lewis, PhD who recently joined the Nutrasource team as Director of Scientific Affairs, GRAS Associates.
“Given our daily and positive interactions with FDA on various fronts on behalf of our clients, it made perfect strategic sense to position our new US office location in proximity to so many key FDA offices and facilities,” said William Rowe, President and CEO of Nutrasource. “This move is part of our continued commitment to serve our customers while viewing government agencies as allies in product development and market access. We look forward to an increased in person presence by way of this change for all of our stakeholders.”
Brad Wallace, COO of Nutrasource also adds, “The opening of a strategic office in North Bethesda, MD is another key step along the way to building Nutrasource into a global leader in the combined and emerging space of pharmaceutical and nutraceutical CRO services. This office compliments the addition of more than 30 leading project management, regulatory affairs, medical writing, data management and clinical scientists to our team combined with the doubling of our head office space and a state-of-the art clinical trials unit over the past year.”
