Life sciences content and communications company BioScience Learning (BSL) has moved into a larger facility after recently expanding its staff.

The company has moved into a 2,500 square-foot building on Glenwood Avenue. Previously, BSL offices were located in southwest Raleigh.

BSL recently hired two business development professionals, bringing the number of current employees to eight.

Spokesman Scott Place says that number will likely double by the end of the year in order to meet the demand from existing and pending contracts.

“The growth should be fairly sustained, because of what appears to be a steady increase in the demand for patient and physician education products and services,” Place explains. “Not only are there new products coming to market, but there is a demand to bring education sources to existing drugs.”

BSL has been on a fairly steady growth path for the last six to nine months, Place says, without significant outside funding…just from founders who participated in a small seed round to launch the company in November 2002.

Among those people were Larry Laws, who now serves as president and chief executive officer of BSL. One of the better known entrepreneurs in the Triangle, Laws has started a handful of firms, such as Tech Resource Group in 1993.

Laws has indicated that BSL, his latest venture, would be announcing multiple new contracts in the near future, including a patient education project with a major international foundation focused on women’s health.

“There seems to be an acceleration of new drug and medical devices coming to market,” Laws said, “and our business is growing from the expanding demand from pharmaceutical and HMOs to better educate patients and physicians.”
