St Paul, MN (PRWEB) June 27, 2013
MD Biosciences, a global preclinical contract research organization (CRO), announces the expansion of its preclinical contract research laboratory in St Paul, MN. The expansion of the laboratory provides additional capacity to increase the in vivo research models of its inflammations division. Additionally, adding capabilities in the areas of metabolic and cancer research are underway with metabolic studies already being offered. As part of this expansion, MD Biosciences is also hiring experienced scientists in these areas to join our St Paul research team. The lab operates under a full IACUC committee and is currently in process of applying for AAALAC acreditation, which the aim is to achieve by the end of 2013.
As biopharma companies are dealing with reduced R&D budgets and pressures to replace revenue from patent expirations, bringing a clinical mindset to non-clinical study design assists in translating preclinical data human disease. MD Biosciences is continually developing new methods that help address the gap between non-clinical data and clinical outcomes. Often times existing preclinical disease models are all that is available but don’t necessarily reflect what is seen in the clinic – additional capacity enables MD Biosciences to continue its R&D program in search of new and more relevant preclinical models and biomarkers.
MD Biosciences currently offers a wide selection of in vivo models within inflammation/autoimmune, CNS, pain, wound healing and cardiovascular fields of research. Its focus is on the cross-talk between the immune and nervous systems and the areas of overlap as well as contributions of one to the other in disease pathways. This deep understanding in the cross-talk and a strict focus on sponsors objectives enables MD Biosciences to contribute to the overall study design.
"The expansion of the preclinical contract research lab in the US assists us in serving both North American and International clients. Our global laboratories in the US, UK and Israel are positioned to be able to serve each market and research niche efficiently with strong scientific insight. Our approach to deeply understand each sponsors objectives allows us to contribute and invest scientifically in their program," says CEO Eddie Moradian.
More extensive information on the models offered can be found on MD Biosciences website.
