Bio Pharma Services, Inc., a Toronto-based company, plans to open a 48-bed drug testing facility in Columbia in February. Renzo DiCarlo, Bio Pharma’s CEO, estimated a dozen full-time positions and several part-time and contract positions will be created in 2014. He said there would be a significant need for part-time physician and nursing oversight as well.

The testing facility will run: bioequivalence studies to compare generic brands to name brands; the first testing phase in humans to evaluate whether a drug does what it’s supposed to do; and phase two studies to determine the effects of the drug on patients.

DiCarlo said the facility could grow to 40 or 50 full-time employees in the next three years, if things go according to plan.
