CRO Leadership Awards — Altasciences Recognized for Leadership

LAVAL, QC, Canada (Feb. 19, 2015) — Altasciences is pleased to announce that its companies, Algorithme Pharma (Montreal, Canada) and Vince & Associates Clinical Research (Kansas, USA), are both 2015 CRO Leadership Award recipients. “Vince & Associates joined Altasciences in May 2013. Integrating two companies requires a tremendous amount of effort, collaboration and communication; clearly, we have done something right. To be recognized by our clients in such a way is both rewarding and a phenomenal success story for us. It is a testament to how hard our teams have worked together over the past 18 months to continuously provide unparalleled service and expertise to our clients.” says Chris Perkin, CEO. The CRO Leadership awards were developed by Life Science Leader magazine to assist life science executives and directors in their vetting process of CROs. The surveys and industry research for this award is managed by Nice Insight, the market research division of That’s Nice LLC. Nice Insight conducts an annual survey on pharmaceutical outsourcing practices to collect baseline customer awareness and customer perception of 100+ CMOs and 70+ CROs. The annual survey includes 250+ questions and is heavily logic based so that the right respondents are asked the right questions. This year over 2,300 pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical professionals participated in the survey. Algorithme Pharma was awarded five CRO Leadership Awards in the following categories: Quality, Reliability, Productivity, Regulatory and Innovation. This is the second consecutive year that Algorithme Pharma has been recognized by the industry for its leadership. This was Vince & Associates Clinical Research’s first experience with the survey and they received six CRO Leadership Awards, for Quality, Productivity, Regulatory, and three awards in different sectors for Innovation. “We are honored to have been recognized as a leader in the CRO industry. Our mission has always been to provide the highest quality early stage clinical development solutions, while exceeding our customers’ expectations with personalized and timely service. These awards recognize and validate the efforts our employees put in on a daily basis to achieve our goal. I am extremely proud of our team." adds Chris Perkin, CEO. Algorithme Pharma and Vince & Associates Clinical Research provide comprehensive early stage clinical drug development services in Phase I/ IIa, including the necessary support services for this critical stage of drug development. While each of these units has maintained their brand identity, they are linked together by a common focus on excellence in customer service while providing quality clinical solutions; all operating under the ALTASCIENCES umbrella name. A third clinical site in Fargo, North Dakota (Algorithme Pharma USA) opened in January 2015, and is working closely with the rest of the Altasciences group to add even more early stage expertise and capabilities.
