Lifetree Clinical Research Expands Research Bed Capacity

October 6, 2011

Company News Release

Lifetree Clinical Research

has expanded its in-patient capacity from 60 to 75 beds in the early stage research unit at the 35,000-square-foot facility located at 700 E. 3838 S. in Salt Lake City, Utah. This expansion represents a greater than 100 percent increase in size since Lifetree Clinical Research was founded in 2003 at the same address as a 5,000-square-foot facility with eight beds.  

The 25 percent increase in beds will allow Lifetree to conduct larger Phase I clinical research studies and support expansion into early stage research in new therapeutic areas such as experimental human models,  Alzheimer’s disease, Hepatitis C, and broadened Neuropsychiatric capabilities. Despite an uncertain climate facing many of the nation’s contract research organizations, many of which reduced or eliminated bed capacity over the last four years, Lifetree continues to experience record growth and an expanding client base representing many of the nation’s leading pharmaceutical and biotech research and development companies.

Lifetree currently employs more than 100 Salt Lake City area residents in addition to other supporting personnel throughout the United States.
