Souderton, PA., 6 December 2016 – Almac Clinical Technologies, part of the Almac Group, the world’s largest privately-held contract pharmaceutical development and manufacturing organisation,  today announced the formation of a strategic partnership with inVentiv Health, a leading biopharma outsourcing company combining a leading CRO and the industry’s only Contract Commercial Organisation (CCO).
