PRA, a clinical research organization, recently opened an office in Bucharest, Romania to further strengthen its coverage of the Balkan region’s burgeoning markets. The Bucharest office will also support projects in the neighboring Republic of Moldova.
Since 2006, when PRA began conducting clinical trials in Romania, the PRA staff has steadily increased and now includes both product registration and early phase professionals. The number of studies initiated by PRA in this region has more than doubled over the last two years.
“By being based in the Balkan region’s key business and life sciences hub, the Bucharest staff has convenient access to top universities, academic research sites, and most of the country’s major hospitals,” said Ludger Langer, PRA’s vice president of clinical operations in Europe, Asia-Pacific and Africa.
