genae, a global CRO and service provider for the medical industries, has expanded its North American activities with the opening of offices in San Francisco. genae Americas was incorporated in 2011 and has since then opened offices in New York City and Cleveland, Ohio.
"San Francisco is strategically centered in one of the highest concentrations of medical innovation and leading research facilities on the West Coast," said Philippe Kassab, president at genae Americas. "The expansion of genae from the East Coast to the West Coast supports our commitment to be closer to our industry partners and patient population, and to deliver high quality clinical research."
As of May 2016, almost 40% of the world's medical devices clinical trials were conducted in North-America, with a third of U.S. medical devices clinical trials on the West Coast.
