ClinChoice Acquires CSI, Expanding its Global Footprint into Southeast Asia

Shanghai, China; Philadelphia, USA; and Singapore, January 12, 2024 – ClinChoice, a leading global Contract Research Organization (CRO), today announced expanding its global footprint with the acquisition of CSI Medical Research (CSI). CSI is a regional clinical CRO with professional staff and partners located across Southeast Asia (SEA), Australia and New Zealand (ANZ), to provide innovative and cost-effective clinical solutions.

In recent years, the overall environment and infrastructure to support clinical research in Southeast Asia have been significantly improved.

The management team at CSI consists of seasoned clinical research professionals that had worked in some of the biggest names in the industry before establishing CSI. The Company has managed a wide range of clinical trials with their extensive knowledge of local practice, requirements and regulations.

ClinChoice, as a global CRO, is dedicated to providing full-service and functional solutions across the entire development lifecycle for pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device, and consumer product companies locally and globally.

“This is an exciting time for ClinChoice, and we are thrilled to welcome the talented CSI team to the ClinChoice family.” said Mr. Ling Zhen, Global Chairman and CEO of ClinChoice, “With their wide-range of highly valuable service offering and seasoned professional team, the acquisition of CSI will further expand our presence in SEA and ANZ, and enhance our capability to well fulfill our clients’ need locally and globally.”

“Joining with ClinChoice is the ideal next chapter in CSI growth story. We are excited to leverage on our familiarity with the SEA and ANZ regulations as well as the clinical sites within a region we called home, to assist more customers to navigate through the challenges with great speed and better cost efficiencies.” said Mr. Nelson Wong, Founder and CEO of CSI Medical Research, “CSI’s vision and mission in the approach to manage clinical trials are very much aligned with ClinChoice, and the company’s high-quality, efficiency and teamwork culture will be fantastic for our talented employees and clients alike.
