“I think it’s no secret within the industry that one of the fastest growing areas of demand for pharmaceutical companies has been their development needs for biopharmaceuticals,” said Jon F. Denissen, PhD, senior vice president, PPD Laboratories, at the company’s recently expanded facility in Middleton, WI.
To meet this demand, the contract research organization (CRO) has been expanding capacity globally. Most recently, PPD opened a 32,000 square-foot analytical laboratory, making room for more than 100 new employees.
“It’s been a substantial undertaking I think for every company in the CRO industry to keep up with demand for biopharmaceuticals,” Denissen told us after touring the new laboratory.
