In February1996, Biomedical Research Group and National Medical Research Corporation merged to form what is now known as SCIREX Corporation. Since that time, SCIREX has become the premier provider of clinical research services for Analgesia and Central Nervous System disorders.
In a message to the company marking the milestone, CEO James Utterback thanked employees for their contributions to the success of the enterprise and of its clients. “We go past our 10th Anniversary with many goals and opportunities ahead of us…I am proud to be a part of this company's history and future. You, too, should fill with pride when you consider how important each of your contributions are to improving health and bringing new medications to the global marketplace.”
SCIREX now helps clients address every phase of drug development process, including full Phase I-IV clinical research, early development services, and post-marketing solutions. Additionally, in 2005 SCIREX expanded operations farther into Europe with the opening of its Poland office and formed strategic partnerships with Clinigene/Biocon Ltd. in India and GleneaglesCRC in Singapore.
SCIREX now has offices in Philadelphia, Chicago, San Diego, Austin, Salt Lake City, Tampa, Hartford, London and Krakow.

Regardless of growth, Utterback observed that “therapeutic focus, scientific expertise, and quality will continue to guide our efforts.”
“Ultimately, the measure of our success,” added Utterback, “will be continuous improvement in each of four key metrics: client satisfaction, employee satisfaction, project team performance, and financial performance.
