AmericasDoctor.com & Affiliated Research Centers announce merger that revolutionizes clinical trial recruitment, expedites pharmaceutical research

Galen Associates, Tullis-Dickerson, Delphi Lead Investment Round; New Company is First 'Clicks & Mortar' Solution to Pharmaceutical Industry Needs

The AmericasDoctor.com/Affiliated Research Centers merger is an industry landmark, representing the first time a consumer-oriented Internet entity and a clinical trials management organization have combined resources on a large scale to meet a common objective.
