RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. – capacity for research at its facility in London is larger now following the addition of new 35 beds.

The life sciences service and contract research organization company now has 105 beds for clinical trials in London and 385 worldwide.

Later this year, Quintiles will add a unit in Hyderabad, India.
