Nijmegen, Groningen, Weert (The Netherlands), & Cambridge, MA (USA) – March 3, 2020
MercachemSyncom, the leading mid-sized European drug-discovery contract research organization, has celebrated the opening of its first office in the USA at the Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC) at One Broadway, Cambridge, MA.
Eelco Ebbers, CEO of MercachemSyncom, said: “We have seen a dramatic expansion in the past two years in our USA discovery and development chemistry projects, with both existing and new partners, with the Boston area being one of the key drivers.
The logical conclusion was therefore to create a physical base for us in the area to further facilitate our interactions between our current and future clients and our European operations sites.” The office will be managed by Dr. Bart DeCorte, Vice President of Business Development for North America (pictured below on the right at the CIC in Cambridge with our Head of Business Development, Dr. Russ Thomas).
The opening of a USA base follows on from the acquisition of a further cGMP CMC drug substance development site in Weert this January.
