(Mount Laurel, NJ; December 7, 2011) – CRI Worldwide, a specialized research organization with concentrated expertise in psychiatry, pediatrics, pain and neurology, which recently acquired Lifetree Clinical Research®, has united the two companies under the new name, CRI Lifetree. Accompanying the new name is its strategically focused tagline, “Innovative Solutions. Reliable Results.”
The company integrates CRI’s leadership in psychiatry and expertise in complex studies with Lifetree’s widely recognized clinical trial management and site expertise in Phase I-III pain management and abuse liability studies. Bringing the companies together under one unified name streamlines all branding, communication, and SOPs and processes across the two companies.
“CRI Lifetree is grounded in sound science,” stated Alice Jackson, CRI Lifetree president. “We give our clients the innovation they are looking for—from ‘entrepreneurial’ first-in-human study design to solutions for specialized human abuse liability research.”
“We’re off to a great start; the company is busier than ever,” commented Jeff Kinell, CRI Lifetree CEO. “Since the acquisition, our clients have continued to receive the highest quality service and results, while enriching the early stage clinical research landscape for our sponsors.”
As a clinical research provider with more than 25 years of expertise, CRI Lifetree is a leader in specialized, multi-therapeutic inpatient and outpatient early stage research. The organization offers a broad range of Phase I-IV services and rapid access to specific patient populations to meet the requirements of complex clinical research programs.
