Pharmapace will become a wholly owned subsidiary of WuXi Clinical and will continue to focus on growing its core biometrics competences and integrate with WuXi Clinical’s other clinical development services.

Pharmapace, which was founded in 2013, provides a full range of biometrics services for all phases of clinical trials, including clinical and statistical programming, data management, biostatistics, clinical data integration, and medical writing. The acquisition enables WuXi Clinical to expand its biometrics capabilities in the US and Europe.
