The Charlottesville, VA contract research organization (CRO) Atlantic Research Group (ARG) has opened new European offices in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and Warsaw, Poland.
ARG President Lyle Camblos said the company will grow initially in the areas of programming and clinical operations as a result of the office openings.
"We will see growth in Europe in terms of oncology studies, and continue to lead in rare disease, neurodegenerative disease and immunology,” Camblos told us.
ARG CEO Paul Bishop described Amsterdam and Warsaw as the “ideal locations at the right time.”
“With Europe's regulatory arm now in Amsterdam, and the general uncertainty about Brexit, we feel good about having offices in the UK, Western Europe, and the CEE,” Bishop told us.
Additionally, ARG has been working in both the Netherlands and Poland for more than a decade, so Bishop said this is not ‘uncharted territory.’
The company established its first office outside the US in December 2018 with its acquisition of the UK-based CRO CCA Clinical Research.
The deal saw ARG’s workforce expand my approximately 100 employees.
