Water Street’s partnership with Bioclinica began in 2013 when we invested in CCBR-SYNARC. One year later, we facilitated a transformational merger between CCBR-SYNARC and Bioclinica that elevated the company to a premier global provider of specialty outsourced clinical trial services.  Bioclinica completed six more strategic acquisitions that strengthened and broadened its capabilities across every major phase of clinical development.  During the 3.5 years of our partnership, Bioclinica doubled in size and expanded its customer to more than 400 corporations, including the top 100 pharmaceutical companies and the top ten contract research organizations. Today, Bioclinica into one of the world’s leading providers of specialty clinical trial solutions.  In 2016, a global firm acquired Bioclinica.
