The addition of ERA Consulting allows PharmaLex to further expand its geographic footprint as well as strengthens its biopharma capabilities
Frankfurt, Germany – February 24, 2021: PharmaLex Group, a leading provider of specialized services for the pharma, biotech and medtech industries worldwide, has completed the acquisition of ERA Consulting (ERA).
Founded in 1987, ERA is an international consulting firm which provides strategic product development and regulatory support and specializes in the development of vaccines, ATMPs and cell and gene therapies. They have offices in Germany, the UK and Australia, and have an established multidisciplinary team of 20+ experts and key opinion leaders in the fields of molecular and cell biology, protein biochemistry, immunology, ATMPs, cell and gene therapy, non-clinical toxicology, manufacture, quality control, validation, and electronic submissions.
In addition to enhancing capabilities and expertise in the biopharma sector, the acquisition also expands our global geographical footprint and market reach, with a new location in Australia.
