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.
