UK-based contract research organisation Chiltern International is living up to the ‘International’ tag, opening a new office in Budapest hard on the heels of raising its profile in Belgium and the Netherlands.

The Hungarian operation will be headed by Dr Attila Lorinczi, a member of the Hungarian Medical Society and the Society of Hungarian Urologists with more than 13 years’ broad experience in the pharmaceutical industry, most recently as a clinical operations manager.

Hungary and the Central and Eastern European region “continue to provide excellent quality data and good patient recruitment rates”, Lorinczi noted. “We expect this to grow further due to the knowledge and expertise of Hungarian investigators and the availability of quality staff.”

Referring to the recent office opening in Brussels, Lewis Cameron, Chiltern’s executive vice president for Europe, said: “We are delighted to show our continual regional growth in line with our strategy for increased global coverage”.
