Certara Acquires UK-based Insight Medical Writing

Expands global reach and deepens regulatory expertise

PRINCETON, NJ.— June 10, 2021– Certara, Inc., the global leader in biosimulation, today announced the acquisition of Insight Medical Writing, based in Oxford in the United Kingdom.  Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Founded in 2002, Insight Medical Writing offers regulatory services and medical writing. Its medical writers are all PhD trained and come from diverse backgrounds such as molecular biology, oncology, and pharmacology. The acquisition expands Certara’s regulatory science capabilities in the UK and Europe.

“We are pleased to welcome Insight Medical Writing to Certara,” said Justin Edge, president of Certara’s Regulatory and Access Division. “Insight Medical enhances our ability to support the regulatory submissions of our growing client base in the United Kingdom and Europe. Together with our new colleagues, we look forward to expanding our regulatory science capabilities and global footprint while providing Synchrogenix’s advanced regulatory technology to more clients.”

The global regulatory landscape is complex and evolving.  Biopharmaceutical sponsors need to rely on partners that can support sequential, parallel, or even simultaneous submissions to multiple global regulatory agencies. Certara accelerates these steps in the drug development process through its regulatory talent and technology.

“Joining Certara is a natural next step in our journey. We share common values and a commitment to quality,” said Kerry Walker, founder of Insight Medical Writing.  “This is a complementary fit in terms of culture, clients and technology.
