Rho, a full-service CRO focused on bringing new products to market through a full range of product development services, recently announced that the company was named the 2016 Best CRO by Triangle Business Journal, a multimedia source for local business news, research and events in the Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill region of North Carolina, where Rho is headquartered. Rho was also honored with this award in 2015.
Part of the publication’s annual Life Sciences Awards, the “Best CRO” recognizes individuals and organizations contributing to the robust growth of the life sciences industry in the Research Triangle Park (RTP) area of North Carolina. This year’s winners were selected to reflect the power, influence and intellect present in the region’s biology, biotechnology, genomics, neuroscience and pharmacology communities.
“It is an honor to be named the Best CRO by the Triangle Business Journal for the second year in a row, and to be included among life science industry leaders in the RTP region,” said Laura Helms Reece, DrPH, chief executive officer for Rho. “This award is a testament to the hard work and customer focus of Rho’s employees, and their commitment to exceptional service in providing customers the clinical trial support they need. As an employee-centered CRO grounded in North Carolina, we are dedicated to continuing to grow the life sciences industry and improve the business climate, both in the RTP region and across the state.”
Rho is one of 13 companies selected as finalists for the Life Sciences Award.
