With their state-of-the-art Phase 1 clinical infrastructure and expert team of scientific and medical personnel, BioPharma has today decided to donate its World Health Organization (WHO) approved facility for coronavirus COVID-19 vaccine research and treatments.

The global community continues to evolve and develop its response to large-scale health issues with organizations such as the Gates Foundation contributing to the development of infectious disease treatments. In the same way, the leaders at BioPharma wish to do their part for vaccine research to help control the growing epidemic of viruses and disease.

We invite all biotech companies working to create a vaccine for the developing global crisis of this novel coronavirus to contact us to discuss how BioPharma’s capabilities and resources can be mobilized to accelerate the development of therapeutic treatments and vaccines.

The BioPharma team has a strong history of philanthropy and has rallied in the past to respond to global medical needs. Dr. Fathi Abuzgaya MD, Chairman of the Board at BioPharma Services, has volunteered his time for medical missions to Libya and performed pro bono work in Canada as part of the University Health Network (UHN). In 2003, as Chief of Staff of Rouge Valley Health System in Toronto, Dr. Abuzgaya was instrumental in the response to the Severe Acute Respiratory (SARS) outbreak and later developing hospital policy for pandemic planning.

Dr. Abuzgaya, who is also a Principal Investigator remarked, “The race is on to shorten the development time of a COVID-19 vaccine. This coronavirus has not yet been categorized as a pandemic but based on what we have learned from SARS, the potential is real. The team here stands ready today to use our early stage medical research capabilities to support the development of a much needed vaccine.“

Renzo DiCarlo, CEO observed, “It truly is our people that differentiate BioPharma Services from other CROs. We are very proud today to offer our Phase I services to assist the global community. We have been an active partner with the USFDA to further drug research and we are well prepared to do the same for this current global need.”
