ResearchPoint, a full-service global contract research organisation (CRO) based in Austin, Texas, has opened a second US office in Malvern, Pennsylvania.

The company established its North American headquarters in Austin 10 years ago and has grown steadily since, it said. The new office will bring ResearchPoint close to pharmaceutical, biotechnology, speciality pharma and medical device companies operating in and around the northeastern US, as well as giving the CRO access to the area’s skilled workforce, it noted.

ResearchPoint offers expertise in all of the major therapeutic areas, with services spanning regulatory and quality assurance, protocol consulting and design, medical writing, biostatistics, project and data management, site selection, customised Phase I support, clinical and safety monitoring, and cardiovascular and diagnostic safety.
