REM Medical Corp, Phoenix, acquired the Tucson, Ariz, site of PsyPharma Global, which conducts sleep-related clinical trials research. The new clinical research division, renamed REM Medical Clinical Research LLC, is working to provide Phase II-IV trial services to evaluate drug compounds across a wide range of sleep indicators including insomnia and sleep apnea.

“Working with REM Medical will provide my research team with the systems and processes necessary to continue delivering quality services for our pharmaceutical sponsor organizations,” says Derek Loewy, PhD, principal investigator in more than 30 clinical trials at PsyPharma. “Our objective is to build from our Tucson location to expand local capacity, broaden our capabilities, and partner nationally with other leading researchers in the field.”
