The last several months of our operations on the US East Coast, have shown that our local presence is not only bringing us closer to our US clients, but also facilitating a more swift bidirectional transfer of know-how between our labs in Poland and the partner base in the US.Having two US offices located in where the heart of the biotechnology industry beats – in Greater Boston and in the San Francisco Bay areas, is what will definitely bring us closer to achieving our goal of becoming the drug discovery partner of choice for the US biotech and pharma industry.”
