BioResearch Central is a concentration of more than 90 contract research organizations (CROs) and related service providers based in the Kansas City region. Together, these companies represent one of the most diverse and experienced contract research networks in the country, all with a single mission: Accelerating health innovation through excellence in contract research.
As human and animal health companies struggle to advance medical innovation while managing costs, the outsourcing of research and development (R&D) functions has become a critical strategy for success. Pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies are increasingly utilizing external partners for a range of R&D functions, creating growth opportunities for CROs and related service providers.
Our Advantage As the role of outsourcing grows, research sponsors seek more targeted and collaborative partnerships with CROs and related service providers that can provide consistent quality, efficiency, reliability and the mitigation of risk. The companies of BioResearch Central are doing just that while accelerating health innovation through excellence in research, development, and support functions.
BioResearch Central's assets allow sponsors to accelerate high quality R&D. Each of the top 16 global pharmaceutical companies has enlisted BioResearch Central companies for contract research services, and BioResearch Central's companies have contributed to the development of more than 60 currently marketed pharmaceutical products. BioResearch Central represents a collaborative contract research community that helps sponsors to move their products through the development process strategically, quickly, and focused on quality.
Our Assets Made up of more than 90 CROs and related service providers in the Greater Kansas City Region, BioResearch Central employs more than 9,000 people and generates nearly $1 billion in revenue each year.
