Monroe Biomedical Research Acquired by New Harbor Capital in a First Step to Build-out a Clinical Research Site Platform


Monroe Biomedical Research was acquired by New Harbor Capital in a first step to build-out a clinical research site platform.


Specialized research sites that possess diverse therapeutic proficiencies and diverse patient populations play a pivotal role in effectively introducing novel drugs and treatments to the market. These sites provide comprehensive support services that encompass patient recruitment, regulatory adherence, and expedited data collection. By operating within condensed timelines, these facilities guarantee the streamlined execution of trials, and their adeptness proves invaluable for sponsors as they navigate the intricate pathways of clinical development. The contributions of these clinical research sites are paramount in propelling public health advancements on a worldwide level.

Since 2016 Monroe Biomedical Research (“MBR”) has built an expansive clinical research database that is committed to diversity as a research priority. Their wholly dedicated research facility just outside of Charlotte, North Carolina hosts a study team with extensive clinical trial expertise, ranging from Phase I trials to high-volume bioequivalence studies. MBR’s white-glove service and commitment to diversity made it the ideal platform investment for New Harbor Capital to participate in the rapidly evolving clinical research site market.
