Baxter strengthens research network with Belgian facility

18th June 2010

Baxter has announced the opening of a new research and development facility in Belgium, which is designed to strengthen its research infrastructure in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region.

The new Alliance Park centre is located south of Brussels in Braine l’Alleud and merges two of its older operations, allowing the facility to provide services covering all stages of a product’s life cycle.

Researchers at the new facility will focus on developing new drugs and treatments in fields such as parenteral nutrition, peritoneal dialysis and regenerative medicine, while also supporting the firm’s medication delivery and bioscience activities.

Baxter states that this augmentation of its research network will allow it to cater more easily to growing demand for new products.

Ludwig Hantson, Baxter’s corporate vice-president and international president, said: “Alliance Park provides a critical step forward in Baxter’s future by aligning multiple functions in one area, thereby encouraging more ideas to develop into solutions that serve healthcare professionals and patients.”

Earlier this month, Baxter announced the appointment of Robert Davis as corporate vice-president and president of the renal business unit, replacing Bruce McGillivray.
