Marlton, NJ and Garden Grove, CA (October 21st, 2020) – In the short year since its launch, Apex Innovative Sciences (Apex), a clinical research and site service provider, has consolidated its core businesses and is expanding services rapidly across several business fronts. Apex was formed in September 2019, through the merger of the Hassman Research Institute, the CNS Network and Clinical Trial Centers Alliance.
Apex is committed to providing scientific, technological, and organizational expertise in phase I – IV clinical trials, including neurology, psychiatry, addiction, Asian bridging, pain, healthy subjects and general medicine. The company prides itself on delivering the highest scientific and clinical quality for its client partners and participants.
Despite the COVID-19 global pandemic, Apex has expanded significantly, while broadening multi-faceted capabilities in research areas including Human Abuse Liability, Addiction, Asian Bridging, Psychedelics and Driving Simulation. Apex has also expanded commercial partnerships and provided improved access to complex imaging technology from major companies, including Siemens and GE Healthcare.
A significant driver of the company’s expansion comes from its unique ability to provide sponsors with easy access to six clinical facilities with more than 175 specialized inpatient beds. The Apex expansion and integration provides clients with a single point of contact and central leadership – all dedicated to delivering high quality, end-to-end clinical research services while leveraging unique capabilities to accelerate drug development in an effort to achieve the company’s stated goal –Research Today for a Healthier Tomorrow.
