Turning Interest into Action

About Us:

We are the first of its kind full-service, for-profit Contract Research Organization (CRO) in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and Middle East North Africa (MENA) regions. Our mission is to support groundbreaking research in Vaccine, Biologics, and Biosimilar development within the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Our Vision:

  • Advancing Research: Establishing state-of-the-art GxP facilities to support all stages of research and development, from preclinical investigations to clinical trials.

  • Economic Contribution: By offering end-to-end CRO services, we aim to contribute significantly to the non-oil GDP of the Kingdom. The demand for such services surpasses the current supply, especially in comparison to markets like the US, EU, China, India, and Eastern Europe.

  • Creating High-Quality Jobs: Our commitment extends to creating innovative job opportunities within the Kingdom, fostering growth and expertise in the local workforce.

  • International Confidence: With a strong reputation for respecting international IP laws, Saudi Arabia inspires confidence among international clients to conduct their research here.

  • Strategic Location: Situated in a geographically advantageous location, Saudi Arabia offers easy global access and a favorable time difference for seamless international collaboration.

  • Natural Research Resource: Leveraging the presence of P.Hamadryas Baboons, a valuable natural resource for non-clinical research, particularly in vaccine development and biologics. Our aim is to lead in baboon research, providing an alternative to the current cynomolgus model monopolized by Asian suppliers.

  • Talent Pool: We benefit from the robust infrastructure and esteemed universities in the Kingdom, ensuring a rich talent pool of skilled professionals.

  • Diverse Population: The Kingdom's diverse and multicultural population offers a unique advantage for conducting clinical research, enabling a comprehensive understanding of varied ethnic backgrounds
