The US company sees the UK as a good place for clinical trials and is hoping to open at least two more Prime Sites to go alongside the one at Queen Mary, University of London. Including two other current sites, Quintiles employs 2,000 people in the UK, a figure set to rise with the planned opening of the new Prime Sites.
Lindy Jones, Quintiles head of global integrated site services, says the UK is of “significant interested to us,” with fifty trials currently being run at the Queen Mary site. Jones believe that the UK “has opened up far more to clinical research” in the past eighteen months, meaning that Quintiles is considering opening “an additional two, maybe three Prime Sites in the UK.”
