EyeCRO LLC has been awarded full accreditation from AAALAC International for their facility in Oklahoma City, OK. EyeCRO joins the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation, Oklahoma State University, and the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center as the fifth institution in Oklahoma to receive this prestigious endorsement. The award letter from AAALAC International stated: “Especially noteworthy were the strong administrative commitment to the program; the top-down commitment to a culture of care; the well written Program Description addressing all required elements; the well maintained and clean facilities; the thorough and well documented staff training; and the excellent veterinary medical care.”

“We are excited to join the select group of AAALAC-accredited institutions. There are approximately 1000 institutions that have achieved this level of excellence worldwide and we are proud to accomplish this within one year after opening our new research facility,” said Dr. Eric Phelps, Director of Research and Development.

“Our team is excited to receive this tremendous honor that recognizes our commitment to strong science and the highest standards of preclinical research,” said Alexander Quiambao, Vice President of Operations. “This enhances our ability to assist companies around the world which are advancing vision-saving therapies that can treat various forms of blindness,” said Quiambao.

EyeCRO has also recently finished construction of a state-of-the-art addition to its facility for conducting good laboratory practice (GLP) preclinical studies. “This addition will allow us to provide services covering the full-range of preclinical ophthalmic drug development, from performing initial proof-of-concept pharmacology studies to conducting important toxicology and pharmacokinetic studies required by the FDA to enable human clinical trials,” said Dr. Rafal Farjo, Chief Executive Officer.
