Clinical Ink Relocating Headquarters to Innovation Quarter

Clinical Ink, a provider of data-capturing technology for clinical research, will move its headquarters to Wake Forest Innovation Quarter this summer.

Clinical Link has signed a lease for 7,676 square feet of space on the first floor of the 525@Vine building, a former R.J. Reynolds Tobacco facility that has been renovated and revitalized by its owner, Wexford Science & Technology, a BioMed Realty company.

Clinical Ink expects to complete the move from its current offices on North Cherry Street in downtown Winston-Salem in July. Between 25 and 30 employees will be based at the Innovation Quarter site.

“The Innovation Quarter is an ideal location for us,” said Doug Pierce, Clinical Ink’s president and co-founder. “We’re looking forward to being surrounded by like-minded, innovative companies in the area that’s helping to transform Winston-Salem.”

Clinical Ink’s lead product is SureSource, a proprietary electronic platform that provides users with a paperless system for the fast and accurate recording of data, comments, explanations and other information required in clinical trials. The company, founded in Winston-Salem in 2007, also has an office in Horsham, Pa., a Philadelphia suburb.

“We’re very pleased to welcome Clinical Ink to 525@Vine,” said Eric Tomlinson, D.Sc., Ph.D., president of Wake Forest Innovation Quarter. “Its pioneering work at the crossroads of information technology and clinical research fits perfectly into the community of discovery and development that’s evolving here.”

By the end of 2014, Clinical Ink will be sharing 525@Vine with Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center’s Division of Public Health Sciences and Physician Assistant Program, Forsyth Technical Community College’s Center for Emerging Technologies, the Innovation Quarter branch of the YMCA of Northwest North Carolina and Flywheel, a co-working innovations space.
