KCR has joined the Massachusetts Biotechnology Council – a “must” for the CRO as it continues to strengthen its footprint in the US market, says CEO.

The Germany-based contract research organization​ (CRO) moved to a new office in Boston earlier this year, at which time KCR CEO, Mike Jagielski, told us​: “Boston is where money and research meet on the East coast​.”

Jagielski said joining the Massachusetts Biotechnology Council (MassBio) – a not-for-profit organization that represents and provides services to life sciences companies – was a natural step for KCR and a “must​” following the recent move to Boston.

KCR has been present on the US market for a few years​,” he told us. “We have been delivering services in the US for some time, but we were missing an office to focus more pro-actively on growing our US business​.”

The CRO also has operation's hubs in Berlin, Kiev, and Warsaw.

Since our office opening in Boston we are building a strong team to manage full-service delivery in the US and connect us effectively with the European operations for US/Europe projects​,” Jagielski added.
